Karen Borchert, Director of Election Insights at Election Systems & Software – Election Insights: Using Tableau to Improve US Elections –
A presidential election year is again upon us, and with it comes the promise of a bright spotlight of scrutiny around election operations. But unlike past presidential election years, 2016 brings a new ingredient to the table: big election data.
