Dave, is there any chance we could get clarification on what to with blanket primaries? They don't quite fit any of the definitions presented in the upload script. I've just been doing them as open primaries, but I would like your opinion...

Dave, you should put a link on the election results page. That would be more convenient, particularly for new people Smiley

When I open up the upload page, it tells me to log in, even though I already am logged in.

Dave, is there any chance we'll ever be able to submit primaries for third parties?

I've put this question on the Vote UK board but I'll put it here too 'cause you guys might be able to help me:

I've got Boundary Line from the Ordnance Survey but I've never used GIS software so I'm a bit stuck. (In fact that's not quite true, but the last time I used it was 1985 and it was a bit different then!) This PC is a crappy Athlon 2600+ 1.92 GHz with 480MB of RAM, so ArcGIS is out of the question. In this very room there are two more PCs and I can set to work on improving the memory situation, but before I do that, is there any more slimline software, or online application, that I could use? Cheers, A

I'm trying to upload maps, but I'm getting all this:

Error: First-line fips code of the data file does not match the chosen state. Check selected state and whether first line of data file is the correct data for the first county of the selected state.

Error: Geographic type Type for Name is not in database. Please check spelling or email Dave

Check to be sure that the header row has been removed from the data file (data file should only include county, city, and state-level data rows and no column titles)
Error: Last-line fips code of the data file does not match the chosen state. Check whether last line of data file is the correct data for the statewide total (does the file have blank lines?).

Error: Candidate 1 name entered in the form, but has 0 total vote. Check that data file columns match candidate numbers.

Error: Candidate 2 name entered in the form, but has 0 total vote. Check that data file columns match candidate numbers.

Error: Candidate 3 name entered in the form, but has 0 total vote. Check that data file columns match candidate numbers.


Can anyone help me? This is quite frustrating Sad

BTW, what does WIP mean (on some user-generated county maps)?

Yeah it can be confusing. If you want to upload the file somewhere I can take a look at it for you.

DAVE,

The upload system doesn't seem to allow elections from 2012. It gives me "year is invalid." I notice nobody else has uploaded any 2012 maps, so I wouldn't be surprised if others have the same problem.

I just contributed the data for the 1962 Wisconsin governor's race, the first one after the founding of Menominee County.  But when I submitted the data, the Menominee County vote still shows up for Shawano County (the county Menominee County was formed out of.)  Anybody know how to fix this, please?

PS: Could you please help me also with the 2012 Wisconsin recall elections?  It showed up after 1960 instead of at the top after I uploaded the data.

I have two more questions: when I try to upload the data for the 1960 Michigan Governor's race, it keeps telling me that something is wrong with the FIPS code (which I've checked and it seems to be all right).  I've tried to correct the errors but I can't seem to think of what might be wrong with it.  Any help with this, please?

This may have been addressed long ago, but would it be possible to add Agriculture Commissioner to the list statewide offices we can upload?

Hi,
Thanks - I have updated the script and database to support Agriculture Commissioner.
Enjoy,

Could we please remove the "Amendment" option from the upload script?  It's confusing, since all amendments that appear on a ballot are initiatives or referendums in the first place.  (And please delete the data that was uploaded with it, too.)

I hate to sound ignorant, but where is the tool that allows me to edit these maps without having to manually edit the URL?

EDIT: just realized that this is something totally separate... sorry! Tongue

I don't know if anything like this has been posted already because I'm not really into maps, but this was posted on twitter (I had nothing to do with it) and I thought people here might be interested.  I don't even know if this is the right thread to post this in.

getting this message:  "

does this look right:  ?

EDIT:   Okay, I figured it out:   I had a blank line at the beginning of the file and the form did not like that.

here's the 2017 Virginia Gov. Primaries:
https://uselectionatlas.org/RESULTS/state.php?year=2017&off=5&elect=1&fips=51&f=0
https://uselectionatlas.org/RESULTS/state.php?year=2017&off=5&elect=2&fips=51&f=0

btw for Mac OS 10 or later, no conversion to UNIX is needed, as it is already the same format.

Quick question: what would you choose for a special runoff election that wasn’t open?
