1  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Re: For Minnesota Fans - New County City and Town Maps on: April 04, 2015, 08:33:26 am
Now available: data by town and precinct with county township maps for statewide executive offices (Attorney General, Secretary of State, State Auditor) 2002-2014.  Did the same for Wisconsin.

Enjoy,
Dave

Hi,
Unfortunately, google changed the mapping api and the mod for SMF v. 1.x was never updated.  Anyone with knowledge of this interface want to look at the script and suggest how we can fix it?
Thanks,
Dave
3  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / For Minnesota Fans - New County City and Town Maps on: March 07, 2015, 05:24:46 pm
Hi -
There are now new city and town maps for Minnesota President 2004, 2008, and 2012 (The individual county subdivision maps and the state-wide interactive moue-over maps prior to 2012 are a member feature).



I'm working on the 2000 results.  Will also be adding Governor and US Senate since 2000 as well.

Enjoy,
Dave

Hi,
Here is 2012 Michigan and 2012 Wisconsin.  The site also has NJ, NY, and all the New England states.  2012 Pennsylvania is coming and will eventually have Illinois, Ohio, and Indiana.

You can see this big map from 2008 here

8  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Re: Question about West Virginia's Republican primary results on: February 24, 2015, 09:57:01 am
Romney won the West Virginia primary with 69.63% of the vote.
According to the CD result map, he won each district in the 60% range.
Such uniform distribution is indeed possible, but are the results really correct?

http://uselectionatlas.org/RESULTS/state.php?year=2012&fips=54&f=1&off=0&elect=2


WV CD results are easy to calculate since there are no county splits. 
CD1: 69.40%
CD2: 69.93%
CD3: 69.23%

You can see the Official results as reported by the WV Secretary of State here:
http://apps.sos.wv.gov/elections/results/results.aspx?year=2012&eid=8&county=Statewide

This type of state-wide uniformity is quite common once the contest is no longer competitive.

Enjoy,
Dave
9  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Re: Presidential election results 2012 a bit divergent ... on: February 10, 2015, 08:42:59 pm
One of the main motivations for me to create the site was precisely the lack of some organized central government repository for the data.  I agree that there should be some official agency in charge of keeping these data and the official documents beyond the certificates of vote and certificates of ascertainment.

Enjoy,
Dave

Hi,
Whereas the other sources you cite are one-time publications that are a snapshot of the official results as published by the state agencies, the Atlas updates data as errors are discovered to provide the most accurate tally.  These include the addition of write-in votes not counted by state agencies, amended results by individual counties, and mistakes discovered through tallying precinct/town results.

Some examples for 2012 include:
  • Warrick County, IN discovered 3,791 uncounted ballots in March of 2014
  • Wilson County, KS double-counted ballots
  • Rockland County, NY - Atlas includes amended results
  • New Jersey - several counties have amended results
  • Massachusetts - corrected figures in Easton (Bristol County)
  • Connecticut - corrected figures in Waterbury (New Haven County)
  • Many write-in votes included that aren't tabulated by state agencies - over 152,000 votes so far

12  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Re: DAVE: 1900 map ND on: February 09, 2015, 06:33:43 pm
On the 1900 national map, ND is the >60% shade for McKinley.  The result for McKinley is listed as 55.25%.

Hi,
Actually, in this case, the map is correct and the data is wrong.  Took the opportunity to fix the data, added the county data, updated North Dakota county maps since 1898, and updated all maps for the contributed ND results prior to 1908.

Thanks,
Dave

Here is another example - Oakland County, MI 2012 President -
Sorted by Republican Win ascending and then by %Margin ascending, filtered for only Cities and total vote > 2,000.  Mouseover highlights Bloomfield Hills City on the map.

19  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Re: I would just like to say (New data table functionality) on: January 24, 2015, 01:47:04 pm
Hi -
Thanks - this is still a work in progress.  Data tables are now directly interactive to sort and filter. 


  • You can sort the table on a given column directly by clicking the arrows in the header row cell (once, sorts ascending, twice sorts descending, three times removes the sort).
  • You can sort on multiple columns by holding down shift key when clicking on the header cell
  • Mouse over on a row highlights the row and the corresponding shape on the map
  • Mouse over on a map highlights the boundary and the corresponding row in the table
  • Click on the mini map at left of each row goes to the summary page (currently only on county tables with existing town maps)
  • Click on the name at left of each row goes to the next-level down datatable
 

I still need to add state-level mini-maps.  More advanced features likely to come in the future.
Enjoy,
Dave

Thanks for pointing this out.  This has been fixed.

Note: the site underwent an update of php version this week.  There are some possible places of deprecated functionality/incompatibilities that may show up.  Please let me know what else you find.

Hi,
The sample ballot for this contest is here.  His party is listed as a "Progressive/Democratic".  "Progressive" being first (vs "Democratic/Progressive"), I would list as a 3rd party.
Thanks,
