Oh, I'd love to jump on this, but I'm already well employed and maybe a
little overcommitted (my wife would kill me). I'd be willing to volunteer
some, maybe pitch in weekend hackathons, or help
lead/architect/scrum-master (maybe 5-10 hours/week). I'd be super sad if
someone was willing to fund a project like this, but we couldn't staff it

To help others figure out what kind of skills would likely be

The NYTimes page uses JavaScript visualization library, D3,

There is a project/library/framework to parse voter files, but sadly IL is
not yet implemented, and does not use pandas.

These example pages are remarkably similar to Jupyter notebooks (chart,
caption; chart, caption; ...) , and most of the work could be reasonably
done rapid-prototyping in Jupyter. Maybe even the D3 stuff..

Is this something we could work as a partly volunteer effort? If ChiPy
helped organize volunteer sprints, could the campaign maybe kick something
in for ChiPy?
