Hi,
Illinois is also a great state to compile the data by city & township.  Like New York, its needed to collect the official files from each of the counties individually.  

If you would like to help collect the raw data, please post links or email the files to me.  If you need to ask, please ask for a version that includes write-ins, over votes, and under votes (often they can run the report with these options turned on - but sometimes they don't know what I am talking about...)

Here is the status that I have today:

I'll be happy to help. You say municipality, but most cities and villages in IL don't separate the votes for the general election. For a breakdown, do you mean the townships and precincts in them which are the main voting units?

Correct - townships & cities.  Essentially, grab the official precinct reports (canvasses, statement of votes cast, etc.) and then the data can be compiled by township/city.

BTW, I also need most of the counties for 2004 as well - so if any requests are sent, please ask for 2004 as well as 2008.

Thanks,
Dave

Thanks to DavidNYC and some on-line scouring, I've upped my IL county count and posted a starter map attached to the first post. Any help tracking down the missing data would be great!

Hi,
Thanks to John Mifflin and some more requests, about 20 more counties have been added to the IL map.  The status table and map on the first post have been updated to reflect the changes.  Below is a new map that includes all the North and East states by city and town (includes updates to MA official results, updated IL data, and some IN data).

Note that the map doesn't include proper results for some cities in Indiana (notably the shape for Indianapolis) and a couple in Illinois.  I'll need to add additional shape layers for those.

Enjoy,
Dave

I am guessing Illinois will look more like Michigan, New York, or Minnesota, as opposed to Ohio and Indiana as it does seem at least in the North Obama did win some rural areas, whereas in Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, it was pretty much the urban and some suburban areas where Obama was limited to.  Interesting to see Indiana as my guess is most of the counties that voted for Obama were ones where he carried the largest city and lost everything else as their counties tend to be quite small compared to other states.  If you can throw in Maryland and Delaware on this map by township, that would be great as well.

Maryland and Delaware don't have townships.

True, I checked and realized they don't which is kind of odd.  I can see why many Western states don't as you have large chunks of land that are uninhabited, by contrast in Maryland and Delaware I believe there are people living in pretty much every part of the state.  That being said one of the incorporated areas and unincorporated areas would be interesting.

Towns were part of the original settlements in New England, and are still an important unit of government. When the Northwest territories, now the Great Lakes region, were surveyed they extended the idea of the town to the townships that divide those counties. The Midwest township still exist as political entities, but lack the level of authority that exists in New England. The South never had counties divided into towns in the same sense and the West followed that model which relied on the county as the smallest subdivision of the state.

Few towns and cities in Maryland are incorporated, because local government services are generally administrated at the county level. Even large counties like Baltimore County have no incorporated towns.

I've picked up the Jo Daviess results for 2004 and 2008. Interestingly the format is not quite the same. In 2004 they prepared a "statement of votes cast" and included the overvotes and undervotes, but not the registered voters. In 2008 they prepared a "district canvass" with registered voters and total ballots cast, but left out the undervote/overvotes which I can only infer by subtraction.

Great!
Its quite difficult to get a consistent set of data - did you specifically ask for the over/under or reg voters?

Dave, you might have already seen this, but we may have some useful files for you here, both for Illinois and elsewhere:
