Tesla is adding Superchargers week after week across the world, but where should its next Superchargers go? Always a fan of crowdsourcing, Tesla is asking customers — well, customers on Twitter — for suggestions on future Supercharger locations. With those suggestions, Tesla will create a poll and have people vote on the final options.

At the moment, there are more than 35,000 Supercharger stalls worldwide. Here’s a quick look at the USA Supercharger map:
