A politician's office, sometimes known as a constituency office, is an office run by a politician or their staff. Usually located in the community they are elected to represent.

The politician may host meetings with members of the local community, run drop-in sessions, and perform administrative tasks in the office. There may be staff employed to work there alongside the politician.

It is usually distinct from a government office, being for the politician to perform duties as an elected representative rather than a member of government. In some countries funding may be provided by the government for the politician to run the office however.

How to map

Either place a node or draw an area around the office and tag with office=politician.
