Distance to Voter Registration Centers


1 min read

Today was the last day to register in advance of Saturday’s election in Afghanistan. Long lines and a last minute rush on registration was reported at some centers. Using data published by the Independent Election Commission of Afghanistan and population data from the UN, we can visualize travel time to registration centers. This map give an analysis of the distance from where people live to where they register to vote. Dark red areas show distances greater than 15km, while green and blue areas show shorter distances. White markers are voter registration centers.
