40 to 49 and 50 to 64 years of age Demographic Map of Alachua County Precincts by Gender and Percent Voter Turnout Gender Summary We tried to analyze whos voting based on

gender, but the proportions of males and females ended up being statistically equal in all blocks. Based on the voting and census data that we have, we were unable to conclude significant differences of voting between males and females in Alachua County. Income of Voters by Precinct

Summary of Income In this map we have tried to determine if having a higher income and education level correlated with a high percentage of voters voting by precinct. The precincts highlighted in blue represent high income level and high voter turnout (30 precincts). The precincts highlighted in red represent low income level and high voter turnout (13 precincts).

Yellow corresponds to low income and low turnout (22 precincts), and Black indicates high income and low voter turnout (4 precincts). Income cont. Thru this data we can see that our initial assumption was approximately correct. With the exception of 4 precincts that were Black, the high income college educated voters were the majority of voters in Alachua county. The next highest

number of precincts on this map was the low income low voter turnout. This shows with some certainty that the people making the decisions in Alachua county are the voters with higher income and higher education levels. Demographic Map of Alachua County Precinct by Dominant
