    I am lost. I’m going to have something to hand in, but I don’t know exactly where to begin with this assignment. I’ve been to pueblovotes.com, and a lot of other sites. Lots of information out there, so much that I think I’ve confused myself with what I need and don’t need as useful information.
    I don’t know if i’m giving anything away, but I was going to review the past voting results, get a mean from that information and begin from there. Am i going in the right direction? Any more hints would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi Rique,
      Yes, you’re going in the right direction. You can use historical data, recent/current polling data and anything else you think is a valid source of data. Part of the idea here is to encourage you to put your best foot forward with an incomplete set of information.
      Best,
      JH

        Awesome! There is a lot of data that I’ve collected, I’d like to get a meeting with you, just so I can go over how all this fits together. I hope we go over this in depth in class, I’d be great to see how it’s done properly.

        Thanks.
