If you people had any idea how much of a pain in the ass compiling this was...nothing like fitting 2004 precinct data to a 2001 precinct set. Pretty damn accurate, but lack of information on precinct splits means an educated guess (same districts) had to be made in a few cases.

Here is the overall view of the state. Yes, there will be zoom-ins. Tongue

Note: colors based on Democratic %, but some light blue precincts (yes, Virginia, blue = Republican and red = Democratic) were actually won by Kerry...which brings me to this...

...there were more votes on the signature roster than votes in the presidential race (or most other races). I mean this happened a lot, and at margins that cannot be accounted for by third party votes. So...either there are a fair number of people who go to the polls for social reasons and don't bother to vote...

...or the machines really do f*** things up. And before I get the conspiracy-mongers showing up, this happened everywhere, to Rep-heavy, Dem-heavy, and marginal precincts alike. I think the machines have problems in general. Thus the move to paper ballots was a good one, in my opinion.

Anyway, on to NM!



First inset: Albuquerque/Rio Rancho metro area.



Second inset: West Side of Albuquerque. Wink



Third inset: South Valley/Downtown Albuquerque.



Fourth inset: North Valley/Northeast Heights Albuquerque.



Fifth inset: Southeast Heights Albuquerque (including Carnuel and Tijeras).



Sixth inset: Rio Rancho/Corrales/Bernalillo.

The Urban March Concludes:

Twenty-Fifth Inset: Los Alamos and White Rock. The dark blue precinct you see there is not a Republican precinct. It is a totally empty precinct, formed from a non-contiguous part of Sandoval County squashed between Los Alamos and Santa Fe Counties. No one has ever voted there, and given that it is a sacred site to one of the pueblos, no one is going to, either. Wink



Twenty-Sixth Inset: Espanola (you know why Jesus couldn't have been born in Espanola? because you can't find three wise men and a virgin! Cheesy yes, that was a joke my high school made about theirs Wink ).



Twenty-Seventh Inset: Los Lunas and Belen.



Twenty-Eighth Inset: Ruidoso.



And that's it. Do what you will. Smiley

You can tell that Gallup is a comparatively white town surrounded by heavily native american land... you can't tell that it's still plurality-native american, though. Seems like Church Rock, to the east of Gallup, voted Republican despite being 98% Indian. (Someone from Church Rock was murdered in Frankfurt's Old Sachsenhausen pub crawl area some years back - by two of his fellow GIs.)

Well, by comparing the stuff from FairData it is more like a Latino-Anglo town surrounded by heavily Native American land, although as you pointed out there are a lot of Native Americans in Gallup. And Church Rock...appears to be east of the Republican precincts (which are themselves in eastern Gallup and in-between Gallup and Church Rock) and is still quite Democratic. Sorry to hear about what happened to their boy Over There (I wonder what was the reason for it?). But there are Rep precincts further to the west that have considerable Native Americans living there...so there is some racial correlation in the voting but it's not a rule you can always apply. Wink

This is incredibly impressive.  Good work.
Thanks! ^_^ Took quite a long time to assemble. I wish there hadn't been that problem with the undervotes and overvotes (yes, there were precincts where the Bush-Kerry vote was more than the signed number of voters on the roster, and no, they didn't follow a partisan pattern) since it makes some precincts light blue which were actually won by Kerry.

VERY nice stuff, WMS.  Smiley
And thank you to you as well. ^_^


I hope it's kinda clear to people why we're such a swing state now. Grin

Ah, so it's distributed between two vast precincts apparently.

No reason basically - they were just drunk enough to think smashing a guy they'd just met to death for 20 Euros and a mobile phone was a brilliant idea.

It could well be. Voting patterns can get very odd.

Oh, well, hope they got punished severely.

Currently serving life without prison terms to which they were sentenced under US military law.
Germany and the US got an agreement IIRC that says any felony committed by one US services member against another on German soil, even if it's outside US bases (as this was), is judged under US law.

You mean life without parole, right? Life without prison isn't much of a punishment...
