My District

Using the map below I found my Election District.  I’m thinking that if a network is built to share that piece of information adding information from another data-sets will enrich my understanding of my neighorhood.  An examle is the “NYS Voter Enrollment by Election District, Party Affiliation, and Status for Voters Registered as of November 1, 2017.” (This document is available from the NYS Board of Elections as a PDF and easily converted to a spreadsheet for analysis).  

An Example: Election District 77 straddles one block east and west of Flatbush Avenue south from Caton Ave and north of Albemarle Road. Next step is to get the number of votes cast in 2016 and work to get that same number for a mid-term 2018 goal.   Working this area will reach a thousand people a day. 

Here is the really good part: Pictured left and taken from the map below, my ED77 has 1,195 registered voters of which 948 are Democrats, 41 are Republican, 4 are Conservative, 3 are Green Party, 2 Working Family, 4 Independents. There are 178 under the heading “blank.”

Tasks for the Ninth Congressional District

  1. Find Election Districts you can work and get your data (ask for BoE pdf).
  2. Share that information using the form below and work the district for voters.
  3. Find and motivate more people. The average in EDs is around 800 Dems.
  4. Get voters to promise you they will vote on June 26, 2018, and if that fails April 28, 2020
  5. Pick a candidate for this primary and convince voters to accept your choice.

Select a location and complete the form below. With contact, it is possible to share resources and ideas about the community and its development. If you found that map disappointing, so did I. In response I worked up a map of my one and managed to edit a d-base of polling sites to just “most of those” in CD9. That effort can be found HERE

Like all information online, ED lines and data will not be 100% accurate, but useful enough to organize a 2018 and a 2020 canvas project for votes from the neighborhoods of the 9th District.  Your vote and canvasing for a candidate is your business.

I examin.ed the 2018 vote by the Election Districts (ED) around the local offices of the challenger Adem and the incumbent, Yvette.  At first glance, the location of Adem’s office appears to be opportunistic and Yvette’s strategic. Have a look here and I updated it for 2020 a bit.

Cards on the table.  I like Adem as a person bent on accomplishment.  I like Yvette, but only as a person.  I believe she follows to lead and while acceptable, its no longer enough to keep our Democracy real or even useful for a city as great as NYC.  It is time for the change Obama started and that person is Adem for Congress.
