Thanks to realisticidealist, I have recently collected a treasure trove of MA data and decided to map some elections out.

Very interesting, please continue. Smiley

For shades, I simply copy/paste those of the official Atlas map key. Wink

Well, it's a bit hard to explain it... First you have to copy the pic, then paste it on your paint file. Finally, you have to use a tool that allows you to select a color on your pic and use this color. Sorry, but I don't know how to say it better. Tongue

Here are the full Atlas shades:



I also would suggest Paint.NET over MS Paint.

The tool looks like an eye-dropper.

If you're shading the maps, it's probably a good idea to copy (or enter) the values into an excel spreadsheet and then use formulas to calculate the percentages. Otherwise, you're stuck punching numbers into a calculator all day.

This thread looks promising, keep the maps coming! Let me know if I can help with anything, since, as you know, I'm deep into this stuff as well. Smiley

By the way, there's no need to bother with 1992 and following elections: I've taken care of them. (1992 is the top left map in my signature, 2000 is bottom right)

Wow, Reagan won Edgartown. I'd say impressive, but considering the landslide...

Eh, Edgartown is the most conservative in Dukes County, so Charlie Baker came about 8% short in 2010. It should be in play for a competitive Republican statewide. Now, Reagan winning Chilmark would be impressive.

I wonder in what year Western Mass, the Amherst periphery, the Route 128 corridor and Cape Cod/Islands each started voting hard Democratic. 1964? 1968? 1976?

I'd love to see if Anderson won any towns in 1980, though I suspect he didn't. Good work so far.

I'll be doing 1980 after I finish 1924, in that case. Be on the look! Smiley

He didn't. The only town he broke 30% in was Gosnold, where he got 30.26%. His second highest was Lincoln at 28.09%. By my count, there were only four towns where both Carter and Reagan were kept in the 30%s. The Atlas has the town map for members.

Stevenson: 49.63%
Eisenhower: 48.25%

In a raw vote total, a 702 vote difference.
