Purple is perhaps the worst color that this cartographer could have chosen for "no data".

That's a surprisingly lopsided map for only a 56-44 split. Did McKinney absolutely clean up in his home region, and/or was the rest of the state mostly (outside Greenwich, it seems) fairly close despite being near uniformly going for Foley?

The percentage of the total GOP primary vote cast in each of the counties was as follows:

26.4% - Fairfield
23.8% - Hartford
18.0% - New Haven
8.8% - Litchfield
8.3% - New London
6.4% - Middlesex
5.2% - Tolland
3.1% - Windham

Though the towns east of the river comprise 40% of Connecticut's land area, only about 20% of Connecticut's Republicans live there. That helps to explain why Foley's victory appears more geographically sweeping than it does numerically.

The Lieutenant Gubernatorial Primary is a remarkable one due to the fact that the hometowns of the three candidates, Bacchiochi, Walker and Somers, are spatially located about as far apart from each other as is possible. Walker could win on the basis of Fairfield County's support.

I understand. I wish I didn't have to charge so much per map, but I haven't had much interest and I don't qualify for volume discounts from the printer. Barter is always an option, though! Got any livestock? Grin

I can definitely make something to order for you, Hagrid. I don't know if I could realistically do a precinct map of the whole of Canada, but I could do one of a province or a city (as I have already done).

Which poster specifically? I'm 5'11", for one.

The finished posters should be each have dimensions of about 36x30, plus or minus a few inches.

Here's the proof sheet from the printer. This sheet is 54x36: the maps I'm having printed will be about half the size of the sheet, so the maps are about 1.5 times too large as shown on the proof sheet.



Last call (for now) if you want some of this.

Not that it matters but what are the laws regarding socks here? Do you still count the vote of the 'sock master'?

I bring it up since WrathoftheGods was apparently a JoMoCar sock.

Unless a moderator informs me that a given voter has been banned, I count his/her vote.

SPIRAL is elected At-Large Senator.

There was a total turnout of 90 votes, with 2 ballot papers being rejected.

I, Homelycooking, Secretary of Federal Elections, declare the above results to be a complete and accurate summary of the votes cast.

13  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Department of Federal Elections: Homelycooking, SoFE on: August 03, 2014, 10:09:05 pm
I won't be available to close the voting booth at midnight (1 AM local time). Naturally, all ballots cast after midnight will be invalid.

If I try to stay awake for another two hours, I'll fall asleep at the keyboard again. I can only recall one or two instances in my life in which I have made it past 1 AM, and I am strongly disinclined to do so tonight. I offer my apologies to all Atlasians for my dereliction of duty. Rest assured, however, that the count will be completed tomorrow afternoon - as soon as I come home from work.

Yes, the election doesn't start for another hour. I apologize for the confusion. From now on, refer always to the Atlas clock below your username for the official, accurate time.
16  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / July 2014 Federal Special Election - At-Large Senate on: July 31, 2014, 11:00:00 pm
REPUBLIC OF ATLASIA - In Dave We Trust
Official Ballot

This special election is held in accordance with Article V of the Constitution and with the Consolidated Electoral System Reform Act. The regular election begins at 0:00 EDT, Friday, August 1, and ends at 0:00 EDT, Monday, August 4.

DO NOT EDIT OR DELETE THE POST CONTAINING YOUR BALLOT IN ANY WAY AFTER 20 MINUTES OF ITS BEING POSTED OR YOUR VOTE WILL BE INVALIDATED

The act of campaigning within the election booth is strictly forbidden and will render void any votes made by those who campaign. The act of campaigning is considered to include, but is not limited to, strong attempts to compel others either to vote or not to vote for one or multiple candidates, or other related activities that could reasonably be construed as a direct attempt to influence how future voters cast their ballots. In other words, this is not a discussion thread. In short, the department will be taking a liberal interpreation of this, so Keep posts to votes only.

Place the numbers 1, 2, etc. in the space provided beside the candidates who you wish to vote for to designate your order of preference for these candidates.  If any other mark or attempt to order the candidates is made, the Department of Forum Affairs will make every effort to deduce voter intent from the content of the ballot, but the warning must be issued that failure to follow the above instructions may result in the invalidation of your ballot in the event of an inability to discern voter intent.  You are an eligible voter in general if you were registered to vote on or before the proper date, and if you made 10 posts in any location within the Atlas Forum in the 8 weeks prior to the commencement of the regular election. In other words, if your name appears on the Census list, you can presume you are eligible.  

In the event that you do not support any listed candidate or that you support one or many candidates that are not listed in addition to those that are, you may write in other candidates and include them in your list of preferences.  Space is provided for one such write-in, but as many can be listed as you wish.  In the event that you do not support any listed candidate, and do not wish to write in any candidate, you may place an X or a 1 beside "None of the above", and only beside "None of the above".  In the event that an X or a 1 appears beside "None of the above" on a ballot, all other marks or numbers will be ignored.  It is not permissible under current election law to vote for both "None of the above" and other candidates.

Note that voting begins at midnight and ends in exactly 72 hours.

Names of candidates follow in alphabetical order.

France 2002 looks awesome! I'll definitely take one. Any chance it could be printed phosphorescently so it would glow in the dark??

That's a fun idea, but I don't think the printer can do that.

I would definitely be interested in a France 2002 one.

I had a feeling that you would... Wink

If you still have this map anywhere, that'd be really excellent.

How's this: I'll make you a new map of South Africa by ward instead of district.

This one, perhaps?



If you have something in particular in mind, I could make a map and a poster to your specifications...

Ron Paul won a town in Maine with write-in votes? That's awesome.

That is awesome, Maine was one of the most pro-Paul states during the 2012 Republican Primaries. I wonder if a few families (assuming it is that small) got together and decided to all write-in him to make it show on a precinct map like this. Or maybe a group of libertarians got together to live in rural Maine. Who knows?

I'm not interested in buying it, but I am interested in looking at the maps, its truly beautiful! Thank you Homelycooking Smiley

You're welcome! The township in question is Concord Township (it's a municipality map, not a precinct map), where Ron Paul received 100% of the three votes cast. Ron Paul's write-in vote was negligible elsewhere in the state. Some local reporter should head out there and find out a little more about this peculiar result.

Anyone else interested? I can bring down the price somewhat if enough people express their interest.

I think that a higher priority should be to allow for the popular election of the President.

WrathoftheGods would not be Constitutionally permitted to serve as Senator if elected due to the requirement that his user account be at least 60 days old. I am not aware, however, of any law that prohibits his name from being placed on the ballot in spite of this.
23  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Have you ever donated money to a politician, political campaign, or PAC? on: July 28, 2014, 06:20:31 pm
Even if they don't, I still mail in my contribution. The Postal Service can use the extra first-class mail volume, and I don't mind paying the extra $0.49 for the privilege of feeling like a cleverdick for a little while.
24  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Have you ever donated money to a politician, political campaign, or PAC? on: July 28, 2014, 02:27:20 pm
Whenever I receive solicitations by mail from any political party, I return their self-addressed envelopes with an enclosed contribution of $0.02.
