Do you have a map of the 2010 Senate election (the Schumer seat) ? I'd like to see what a colossal dem landslide translates into town-wise.

Working on it right now.

The Gillibrand map would be great too, for comparison.  Smiley

For Nathan. I have the complete Rensselaer data from 2000 but no precinct boundaries to map them to. The best I can do is a town map... sorry, I hope you'll understand.

I understand. Thank you very much; it's interesting how far that part of New York has trended in the past decade.

Here is the vote for Cuomo on the Working Families Party line only, 0.5% scale.

Why is Ulster County so Democratic compared to the surrounding upstate counties? It's one of the few upstate counties that voted for DiNapoli in 2010.

Ever heard of Woodstock? It's in the central part of the county. The area has long been a popular meeting place for artistic and bohemian types.

A little farther south is SUNY New Paltz, a relatively large (8k grads & undergrads) public university, culturally liberal even by the standards of liberal arts colleges:

Quote from: Wikipedia
In November 1997, two events on campus attracted nationwide media attention. The first, a feminist conference on sex and sexuality sponsored by the women's studies department entitled "Revolting Behavior: The Challenges of Women's Sexual Freedom", featured instructional workshops on sex toys and sadomasochism. The second, "Subject to Desire: Refiguring the Body", was sponsored by the Fine and Performing Arts Department. One presenter, performance artist Carolee Schneemann, had been known for a piece where she slowly unrolled a scroll from her vagina and read it to the audience.

Well, you can see very well where in New York State there are still families that are working. Grin

It is a silly name, though in my corner of Northern New York I know a number of people who almost always vote on that party line. Ironically, most party supporters who I know derive a large portion of their income from some kind of public assistance.

Because the WFP is more of a pressure group than a political party. Their principal tactic is to lend (or deprive) electoral support from Democrats or Republicans through extensive use of electoral fusion. So, most people who vote WFP are both well-informed enough to understand what the party is trying to accomplish with fusion and far enough to the left ideologically to value the WFP's goal of pushing politics in a more progressive direction.

What county/city/town do you live in?

Ever heard of Woodstock? It's in the central part of the county. The area has long been a popular meeting place for artistic and bohemian types.

Woodstock is in the north of Ulster County - it borders Greene County. It's filled in with the darkest shade because it had the second highest WFP vote in New York at 12.8%. Only the city of Ithaca had a greater percentage (14.1%)

That's the extra-special feature. In those CDs there was a Democrat running unopposed. Rather than color every town in with the darkest shade of red, I calculated the percentage of the Democratic candidate against the total number of ballots cast - elsewhere the R/D candidates' percentages are calculated against the total number of valid ballots cast - and colored the towns accordingly, shading them in purple to distinguish from the districts where a Democrat won every town but ran with Republican opposition.

Have you done other New York State counties by precinct for the '08 primaries? I'd be interested in seeing Jefferson, Lewis, St. Lawrence, Monroe, Ontario or Livingston counties, if you have any of them. Democratic or Republican.

Also, how do you create your maps? ArcGIS?

You're right. I hack it with JPG screenshots from Dave's Redistricting.

To Averroes: Keep in mind that Clinton did really well all across the state of New York, and that some counties, especially Jefferson and St. Lawrence, will just be colored in with lots of 60% and 70% shades. The Republican map is especially boring.




I will do Livingston tomorrow, however. I can't do Lewis at all because they can't find the data at the county's board of elections!

I knew that the North Country was Hillary's strongest region in 2008, but I didn't realize the story was so monolithic at the sub-county level. I'm surprised that Obama didn't come closer to winning either of the college towns (Canton & Potsdam) in SLC.

I look forward to seeing the Livingston County map tomorrow, especially for the Republicans. I've never understood Mitt Romney's relatively strong showing in the Rochester area.

Obama didn't win a single precinct in either Potsdam or Canton, and didn't come close in the vast majority of them. I think Obama's best performance in a precinct there was something like 43%.

Livingston and Ontario in the Democratic primary. Obama won only Geneseo of the towns represented here.
