New maps show Durham, Wake early-voting sites near bus stops


The Bus to Vote map for Wake County shows early-voting sites located within a quarter mile of a pubic bus stop.


There are numerous reasons people give for not voting, including lack of interest or time or a way to get to the polls.

Aaron Berdanier wants to help overcome that last impediment, by creating maps that show early-voting sites that are served by public buses. Berdanier, who calls his project Bus to Vote, has made maps that people can download or print for early voting sites in Durham and Wake counties. He plans one for Mecklenburg soon.

“There have been studies that show that not having access to transportation can be a deterrent to going to vote,” he said. “If we can continue to reduce the barriers to voting — in this case knowing when and where to vote — then hopefully we can increase engagement.”
