FairVote2020 has developed interactive maps showing constituency information on African-American and Latino voters in Florida. The maps include Unregistered African-Americans in Florida, Unregistered Latinos in Florida, and Leon County Nonvoters.
Additional maps show socio-economic data from the 2000 census, party affiliation of registered voters, and results for the 2000/2004 presidential elections and the 2002 Bush-McBride and Crist-Dyer contests.These and other maps can reached by clicking the drop-down menu under "Compare Maps" to the left of the map image window.
Below the interactive maps are links to maps in Adobe format These maps show precinct details for unregistered African Americans and Latinos in municipalities with populations over 15,000.
A final set of 270 Adobe maps shows precinct-level election results and turnout rates in the 2000 election for localities with populations over 10,000.
Unregistered African-Americans in Florida (by 2000 precinct)
Google-FairData Base Map (start with a Google map interface)
Map 1 (Initial Map) -- Unregistered African Americans 18+ by 2000 precinct
At a scale of about 20 miles, the number of unregistered African Americans (by 2000 precinct) is displayed in purple boxes. When you click on ZOOM TO and then click on the map -- voter registration and demographic data for the precinct selected will appear in a table below the map. Click on INFO and then click on the map for more detailed data.
The "Non-Voter 2000" display works only in Leon County for maps 21 to 26.
To suppress the dot display of Leon County nonvoters remove the check in the box to the left of "Non-Voter 2000".
The precincts displayed in Maps 1 and 16 (represented by dark green lines beginning at a scale of about 5 miles on the interactive map ) are based on those in effect for the November 2000 general election and do not reflect post-2000 modifications: Also note that the thematic displays for the unregistered population by precinct do not follow the 2000 precinct boundaries in instances where precinct lines split census blocks. In these instances, where there is not a one-to-one correspondence between census geography and year 2000 precinct lines, the unregistered voter count is an estimate.
The precinct layer can be queried by clicking on the INFO button and then clicking on the map. Precinct data can then be viewed from the pop-up window. Demographic and political data includes 2000 Bush-Gore election returns, as well as total turnout and number of registered voters by race and ethnicity.

Leon County Maps
This map plots about 14,000 Leon County voters (2003) who were eligible but did not vote in the November 2000 presidential election. About 5,000 of the geocoded non-voters are non-white or Latino. There were 19,000 eligible non-voters, but many of these are out of town (students, military, etc). . The map plots households by address, so the dots may represent more than one person. Apartment complexes with the same street address are represented by a single dot. Student dorms are not shown.
To see the block group boundaries in these maps (thick blue lines), zoom in to 5 miles and check the "_Block Group" display box.
To suppress the dot display of nonvoters remove the check to the left of "Non-Voter 2000".
Map 20 -- Leon County registered voters who were eligible but did not vote in 2000 (by block group)
Map 21 -- Same as Map 22 with % Black thematic overlay
Map 22 -- Same as Map 22 with % Latino thematic overlay
Map 23 -- Unregistered persons in Leon County by block group (median income theme)
Note: Low moderate income target area for registration drive is outlined with thick black lines. This area defines all block groups in Leon County with a median household income below $30,000.
There are an estimated 30,000 unregistered persons in this 70 block group target area -- after excluding group quarters (student dorms, prisons, etc.). These are preliminary estimates and tend to overstate the unregistered population in some areas due to non-resident off campus students.
Block-group level unregistered estimates for an area in the southern part of the target area are blanked out on this map, due to geocoding problems which overstate the number of unregistered voters.
Map 24 -- Unregistered population by census block (most detailed level of census geography)
An area in the southern part of the target area is blanked out on this map, due to geocoding problems which overstate the number of unregistered voters at the block level.
