Politics Viz Contest

With so many elections happening this year (US Federal elections, UK EU Referendum and Australian General Election just to name a few), we thought we should get on the bandwagon and make our second 2016 Iron Viz feeder contest about political data.

We want you to create vizzes on politics: from election outcomes to data about the candidates, it's all fair game if it's about politics or politicians. You can use whatever data you'd like - as long as your viz is politics-related that is. Whoever has the most persuasive viz will voted in to the second spot for a free trip to Austin, TX to compete in the Iron Viz Championship at the 2016 Tableau Conference!
