Pennsylvania Get-Out-The-Vote Maps

FairVote2020 has developed an interactive map showing turnout in Pennsylvania for the 2000 presidential election.

Additional maps include census data on race, ethnicity and income. Change maps by clicking the drop-down menu under "Compare Maps" on the left.

At the end of this page is a link to Adobe maps showing nonvoters and 2000 turnout rates by precinct for Pennsylvania cities with populations greater than 15,000. There is also a link to a second set of maps for the same places displaying Bush-Gore by precinct. Use the two sets in tandem to help target your canvassing efforts.

Map 1 (default map) -- Percent Turnout in Pennsylvania 2000 (by 2000 precinct)

At a scale of about 3 miles, the number of voting age persons (by precinct) who did not vote in the 2000 election is displayed in purple boxes. This number includes both registered and unregistered persons and has not been adjusted for non-citizens. Precinct boundaries are those in effect in 2000.

At a scale of about 3 miles, pie charts display in areas with significant minority population, showing race/ethnicity components for the over 18 population.

Note: Percent turnout is calculated using the population 18 and over. Votes cast is calculated based on votes for presidential candidates.

Birds-eye view of turnout for the 18+ population in the 2000 general election. The numbers displayed in purple boxes show unregistered 18+ and non-voting registered voters, i.e. everyone over 18 who did not vote. These maps match the default map in the interactive map described above.

Community-wide Bush Gore Maps

Bush-Gore by precinct (head to head contest excluding third party candidates). The numbers in boxes show votes cast for the two major party candidates -- except for Philadelphia and Pittsburgh where it gets too cluttered to display.
