I know this is as late as all get out, but to get the older maps, simply change the part that says year=2012 (or whatever number) to the year you want it to be.

For example, here's a map posted by PolitiJunkie above:




And here's the same map, except I changed the year to 1824!




it's very cool, though it doesn't work before 1824. and you'll need to manually change the electoral vote to the year you are changing the map to.

Can anybody help me figure out how to add Puerto Rico to a map? For the 2024 election map in my TL All Stand Down.

When you copy and paste the map link, change the part of the url that says "TOOLS" to read "USPRESIDENT". This will cause Puerto Rico to appear on the map in grey. You can then change the color and number of elector votes by adding "&PR=1;3;5" (or whatever you want the color/ev number/pv shade to be) to the end of the code.

Ex:



Before: [img]http://uselectionatlas.org/TOOLS/genusmap.php?year=2012&ev_c=1&pv_p=1&ev_p=1&type=calc...[/ img]


After: [img]http://uselectionatlas.org/USPRESIDENT/genusmap.php?year=2012&ev_c=1&pv_p=1&ev_p=1&type=calc...&PR=1;3;5[/ img]

Are there any other territories or cool features that one can add?

I attempted to add AS (American Samoa) and VI (Virgin Islands) and it did not add those on.

EDIT: I'm now curious to see if Canadian provinces can be added or if there's a way to make a map of just Canada. The provinces are encoded somehow (see my avatar).

That's pretty interesting; thanks for the effort!

Why can't someone just ask Dave how to access them? Or would he even know?

PR is included on the primary maps (see: http://uselectionatlas.org/RESULTS/index.html), which is probably why it shows up but AS and VI don't.
