US Election Dashboards

Project tags:

data science & visualization

ux & interaction design

Our goal was to consolidate metrics across several US election-related projects into centralized dashboards for the Lafayette Group’s Election Security & Resilience team. They maintain several important datasheets related to their engagements, products, and other aspects of election administration in the US. It was a challenge for them to find information quickly, create static visualizations manually, and make informed decisions with stakeholders. To address this, our team built interactive, user-friendly PowerBI dashboards that drastically reduce their task times (from 30 minutes to 30 seconds!), enabling them to easily derive insights for data-driven decisions, and helping them communicate effectively with stakeholders.
