Intro

This project is a vizualization of Hawaii Campaign Spending data for Candidates. It was initially created for Civic*Celerator 2013.

View Online

Please note that this visualization is based on the official Hawaii Campaign Spending data which you can find on data.hawaii.gov: https://data.hawaii.gov/Community/Expenditures-Made-By-Hawaii-State-and-County-Candi/3maa-4fgr

But the data is actually pulled from a filtered/rolled-up view: https://data.hawaii.gov/Community/Expenditures-Made-By-Hawaii-State-and-County-Candi/gvuk-nbsz/data
