Where To Vote

November 3, 2008

The NZ General Election is this Saturday Nov 8. I received my voting pack on the weekend and the data-geek in me started thinking about the Polling Places database. These are generally schools, church and community halls; the schools are all in Zenbu but a lot of the other places aren’t. It took me 15 minutes to pull down all the polling places and parse it into a spreadsheet from the Elections website (Crown Copyright – Last Update: 18 Sep 2008). [Thanks to the Crown for making it easy with a semantically marked-up website!]

It’s probably too late for anyone to do anything nifty with this (FindMyNearestPollingPlace.org.nz?) but here is the spreadsheet of data anyway.

Remember to vote on Saturday!
