Crowdsourcing request: swing district locator
I want to create a tool to help locate swing Congressional districts (CDs) near you. Can you help?
I’ve identified the districts – now I need a way to display them conveniently. The ideal tool would be a compact app that uses a ZIP code to return the nearest three swing CDs, along with links to resources such as Pollster.com and campaigns (both D and R). For example, in California the swing districts are CA-07, 09, 10, 24, 26, 41, and 52. These are places where Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) activity would be most effective – for either side.
The swing districts are listed after the jump. Write me directly (left sidebar, About Us).
Update for the very knowledgeable: in one solution, the key missing piece of information is GIS-friendly Congressional district boundaries. If you have those…swoon!
