Inspiration

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.
