Hey, everyone. Well, last night was fun. With the help of social media, roving volunteer poll reporters, friendly poll workers, and our tech-savvy friend Aubrey Ann Parker, we were able to bring you election results for several districts in real time over Facebook. Next time we hope to have immediate reporting from all townships (if you’d like to volunteer to report numbers from your district in the future, contact elberta.alert@gmail.com).

Aubrey then created this handy-dandy chart with a breakdown of the results by township, including voter turnout for each district. Pretty cool, eh? We’re in the process of collecting more data and creating some other ways to show demographic and political correlations over time. Stay tuned!
