2016: Mayor elections

The end of the 2015, and the beginning of 2016 becomes a hard work time here at La Nación, for this special event was required a full time dedication for about 3 months, but I enjoyed a lot.

With the Data Team, we create a tool for citizens that will gives them a chance to know more about the 605 candidates for mayors in all the Costa Rican territory. Segmented by province, the citizens can easily find their candidates, which in many cases , are completely unknown by his own voters, also this tool has the candidates complaints, money penalties or debts to social security, if there is some. http://goo.gl/6ZNVdp
