Today is election day for several UK local councils. Elections are usually
reported by using tons of statistics, graphs and metrics. We’ll look into
Election data in a Community hangout tomorrow May 3rd 2013 at 2pm-3pm BST. 

We’ll talk about how to obtain data, what you can do with it, ways to
visualize it and try to think outside the box. 

If you want to participate in this community hangout: sign up here:

We'll have a google hangout so space is limited to 9 participants (+1
facilitator) - If you're happy to facilitate please note in the form and
we'll contact you (so we can have more than one call).

See you there!
