History of Voting

Maps and Voting

Due to our geography as the United States and the changing boundaries of our country, maps have always played a vital role in how voting is measured and how offices are allocated. As more portions of the population have been given the right to vote, the maps have become increasingly important from local elections to the Presidential elections.
