How to request a TIGER administrative boundary import?

I have been trying to fix-up some of the administrative boundaries(not start from scratch. I have found that there are some missing ones and would like to know if there is any formal process to try to re import the missing ones from the TIGER 2012 data.

Why request? OSM is a do-ocracy. If you want something, do something:

  • The TIGER data is in public domain so you can fetch it.
  • There are the import guidelines. (Take care not to skip some for convenience, especially do talk to the locals in whose regions you want to import to!)
  • Put some real effort in all of it, not at last in converting and cleaning the data

-> you can import the data you need yourself.
