There’s a map for: Where the votes are, Spokane

Spin Control regularly reports the voter turnout in elections as a gauge of the relative strength of different areas or neighborhoods.

But turnout is a percentage of the people who vote divided by the total people registered. Some areas that have high turnout don’t have as many voters, and some with a relatively high number of voters fail to generate much interest in the candidates or issues on the ballot.

This is a look at where the votes are, if a candidate or campaign can get them.
