During PBNYC cycle 6 (2016-2017), New Yorkers had the opportunity to vote for their five favorite projects proposed in their Districts. 102,800 New Yorkers voted for their favorite projects across 31 Council Districts, allocating over $40 million in Capital funds for PBNYC Cycle 6 (2016-2017). Cycle 6 saw a 45 percent increase in the number of voters (up from 67,691 voters in Cycle 5). While the number of paper ballots stayed consistent, our new off-site digital voting accounted for this growth in participation.
We used data to visualize what types of projects were funded and where.
