This project maps campaign contributions to San Jose’s 2014 mayoral candidates, showing how much was contributed from different zip codes in the region. This project was inspired by a campaign finance visualization created by civic hackers at Open Oakland.
Our goal with this project is to provide easily accessible, non-partisan information on campaign contributions. By taking raw data that candidates are required to report and translating it into a readily understandable format, we hope to engage the public and support transparency and openness.
