The Autocomplete Maps project needs your help

We’re investigating what questions people have about the candidates in the upcoming presidential election. We need your help to gather some data.

Your privacy is totally protected. The script below will grab autocomplete suggestions for a handful of political searches in your area. Besides your location and these suggestions, no other data is collected.

We’ve had a lot of great response…

But the following states are underrepresented:

AL, AK, DE, HI, ID, IN, LA, MS, NE, NH, ND, OK, RI, SC, SD, WV, or WY.

If you live in one of these states, we’d love your help! If you don’t live in one of those states, please help us recruit your friends who do!
