Hey guys, if anyone is interested, I've started mapping Belgian elections since 1949's. Should I post them here or is there an appropriate thread for historical election maps?

Post them here! I looked and there was no general thread.

Just out of curiosity, are they by electoral district or by commune?

By constituency, so by arrondissement, largely.

So I've mapped 1949, 1950 and the referendum on the royal question. The numbers are crunched for 1954 but not the map. The election was done in a two-tiered system where the provinces also served to distribute the seats more proportionately but sadly the Belgian electoral website does not keep track of that tier, instead just the final tally once the second-tier seats were assigned to the constituencies.

NOTE: In 1950 and onwards, in Limburg and Luxembourg the Liberals and Socialists ran joint lists in order to be able to elect anyone given the overwhelming strength of the PSC-CVP in those provinces. The MPs AFAIK who were elected sat with the Socialists.
