Gomez Addams is an extremely wealthy man and is able to indulge his wife Morticia's every desire, whether it's cultivation of poisonous plants or a candlelit dinner in a graveyard. Gomez and Morticia have their two children, Wednesday Addams and Pugsley Addams, but Wednesday is now in love and needs to introduce her new fiance and his parents to her family.

This is part two of a three-part series of “story maps” that examine discrepancies between total adult populations versus registered voters in Thurston County (I am calling this the discrepancy for short). In part one (see http://arcg.is/1LzsiXy), we identified which precincts in the county have a higher percentage of unregistered versus registered adults. We found that some cities had a greater discrepancy (i.e., a higher percent of unregistered adults) than others, with Yelm the highest at 44 percent, followed by Lacey at 33 percent. We found several "hot spots" where there were clusters of greater discrepancies, particularly a large one in Lacey.
In this story map we pick the Lacey hot spot and look for a model to explain the factors that contribute to the discrepancy. We will also look at some of the factors that were not included in the model and why they also might be predictive.
In the next part, I hope to have comments from Katie Nelson, chair of the Democratic party and Garry Holland, chair of the Republican party.Google Plus One Facebook Like
