parser.py processes files based on cached metadata in local_data_cache/elections_metadata.json
To update this metadata from the OpenElections API, run python fetch.py wi -m
(fetch.py fetches data files based on the cached metadata)

To re-parse all data files:

python parser.py

To parse data files for specific elections, append one or more election ids:

python parser.py 426

Elections will be processed in the order they appear in the metadata.
