  • Two hours before polls closed, volume of trips increase significantly
  • Compared to average trips, Pennsylvania up 21.5%, Wisconsin up 25.4%, Minnesota up 31.6%

Real-time connected vehicle data showed an increase in the number of car trips, compared to average, two hours before polls closed in key swing states in the U.S. presidential election on Tuesday, according to Wejo, the largest connected vehicle data company.

In comparison to 5pm on a usual Tuesday afternoon, the volume of traffic on the roads in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania was materially higher than normal. This is likely due to a last minute rush to vote before the polls closed, in what has so far been the highest election turnout to-date.

In key swing state Pennsylvania, although all voters were eligible to vote by mail for the first time, Wejo’s connected car data insights highlight that there were clearly a high volume of voters who preferred to vote in person.

Pennsylvania saw an increase of up to 21.5% against expected volumes, Wisconsin up to 25.4% and Minnesota up to 31.6% more.

Richard Barlow, CEO and Founder of Wejo, said: “Our heightened connected car data insights shed light on a multitude of different societal activities, not least the movement of vehicles on election day. This is just one more example of how powerful connected car data can be.”
