Now it’s time to do some recon. We want to work smarter and use our resources efficiently. What I did was cross-referenced highest populated areas with the polling stations within that zip code. This still left us with too many options.
It’s time to do some critical thinking. We can remove a lot of these areas off the list because we know, based on its location and amenities, that our services would not be needed. Also, we did another cross-reference to the highest poverty zip codes.
If a polling station is within a highly populated zip code, and that zip code also a has a high poverty rate with little amenities, we are going to check those places first.
It’s better to do all the leg work now than when it comes to crunch time. Afterwards, it’ll be time to update our action plan.
