Mapping tech is growing in election administration

A NSGIC research project into the use of geographic information systems by election administrators wrapped up this month, finding that use of the mapping technology in voter registration systems and the drawing of precinct boundaries is expected to grow quickly over the next half-decade.

NSGIC expects that by 2027, nearly 90% of states will have integrated geospatial data into their voter files. Benjamin Freed reports.
