Wisconsin Get-Out-The-Vote Maps

FairVote2020 has developed an interactive map showing turnout in Wisconsin for the 2002 gubernatorial election. Additional maps include census data on race, ethnicity and income.  Change maps by clicking the drop-down menu under "Compare Maps" to the left of the map window.  You may zoom in on the map by clicking on the appropriate button at the top and then on the map. 

Also available are maps depicting Bush-Kerry results by ward, county, and state legislative districts.

At the end of this page is a link to Adobe maps showing nonvoters and 2002 turnout rates by ward for Wisconsin cities with  populations greater than 15,000. In addition,there are links to sets of maps for the same places displaying results for the 2002 Attorney General contest and Bush-Kerry by ward.

There is also a link to more detailed Adobe maps focusing on the minority vote age population by census block for 385 wards with significant minority populations.

Map 1 (default map) -- Percent Turnout in Wisconsin (2002 election by 2002 ward)

At a scale of about 5 miles, the number of voting age persons (by ward) who did not vote  in the 2002 election is displayed in purple boxes. This number includes both registered and unregistered persons and has not been adjusted for non-citizens. Ward boundaries are those in effect in 2002.

Note: Percent turnout is calculated using population 18 and over.

Map 18 -- Statewide Focus Wards

This map displays about 385 wards statewide with a minority  voting age population percentage over 20%. Over 330,000 persons of voting age who  reside in these wards did not vote in the 2002 gubernatorial contest -- compared to 130,000 who turned out to vote. Nearly two-thirds (about 250,000)  of  Wisconsin's minority voting age population lives in these wards

Street-level  printer-ready detail maps can be downloaded  by clicking on the INFO button and then on the ward of interest.  Next select "Focus Precincts" and select the Adobe map link from the lower half of the pop-up window.
