There are so many counties that are being sued for picking bad polling places.
What it does
This algorithm selects the best polling places based on the population.
How I built it
I built it using R and Shiny.
Challenges I ran into
I didn't run into many challenges.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The algorithm helped reduce the average estimated distance by 44%.
What I learned
That technology can be a way to increase transparency in government processes.
What's next for GAPS - Genetic Algorithm for Polling Selection
Make some slight improvements to the algorithm.
