FairVote2020 has developed an interactive map showing precinct-level turnout for most counties in Washington in the 2000 presidential election. We have not yet obtained data for King, Kitsap, Pierce, Ferry, and Benton Counties.
Additional maps include census data on race, ethnicity and income. Change maps by clicking on the map under "Compare Maps" on the left. You may zoom in on the map by clicking on the appropriate button at the top and then on the map.
At the end of this page is a link to Adobe maps showing nonvoters and 2000 turnout rates by precinct for Washington places with populations greater than 10,000. 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 Washington 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. 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. Turnout is calculated based on total voters. In addition to the blank areas on the map for the missing precincts in the counties noted above, approximately 200 precincts (of 3,400 with data) are blanked out due to turnout rates above 100%.

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.
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.
