Midterm Elections Redux: Some Tips

If you’re stumped on where to start for your blog post, check out some of the resources below. Remember, you’re looking at digital presence of candidates, so explain why the candidates’ digital presence helped or harmed them. Don’t go bananas with data, just pick a small dataset to work with. You don’t have to stick with just election results, either; you could look at voter turnout by age, campaign donations, communications budgets, etc. There’s a lot of data out there!
