Chad Lupkes wins Best Progressive Entrepreneur!!

Five weeks ago, BlogPac put out a call to "find the five best new, grassroots progressive infrastructure projects in America, and provide those projects with the money, exposure, and connections necessary to get off the ground."

#1 - "Precinct Map and Voting History Online Application, submitted by Chad Lupkes, King County Democratic Party in Washington State.

This is a project to map every precinct in the state of Washington, along with providing information on how each precinct voted in key elections....this project has the potential to map every precinct in America, and make that information available to Democratic and progressive activists nationwide. The project has already mapped every precinct in King County, Washington, and you can see what this looks like by clicking here."

Yay Chad! A well-deserved reward!

and everyone else involved too.

Should be interesting to see how it develops with this help.

As one of those that didn't win, I'm jealous, jealous, jealous!

Congratulations and good luck!

Geez.  :)

The other people involved are Roger Crew from the 41st, who is providing the conversion from shapefile to his .js data format and the code for the maps, and Fred Morris from the 36th who has been collecting election history results forever.  And also thanks to Scott White, Rob Dolin and Suzie Sheary for their encouragement and support.

Brian is looking into Spokane County.  We still need people to contact the county governments to get the files.  I work during the day so I can't make the calls myself.

Contact me directly if you can help.

Great news!

Daniel K's Pacific Northwest Topic Hotlist is just as congratulations-worthy.  The page is linked to at the top of Washblog's page -- and the stories/categories feature scrolls down our middle column.  These features link together the progressive blogs in the NW and open up access to the stories and community.

There's a lot of innovation going on here in WA.

I'm glad the BlogPac formally recognized what the rest of us have known for some time now: Chad Lupkes rocks. The voting data and google maps "mashup" is seriously cool.

I'm already using it for caucus and voter registration canvassing in the 11th LD.
