Civic data is in high demand these days espcially election data and finding that information nationally or locally can be problematic for constiuents looking for public data.In my case, I was looking for city council represntatives for a project, NYC offers a decent varierty datasets and API’s but I wondered what about the rest of the country?
So below you will find a collection of public datasets from the east to the west coasts and as much as I could find in between.
Illinois Open Data Portal
Illinois Open Data Portal lets you find data across state, find facts about your state, lets you create maps and graphs, and lets you freely download the data for your own analysis. Many of these datasets are updated daily, and some even more often.
