Dave, the green on this initiative map doesn't appear. I don't know if it was my error or a site glitch.

And this to 2002, if it isn't too much trouble.

This map should also be changed to 2002- for some reason, I entered it in the wrong year. I also slightly misspelled the Democrat's first name as "Byran" instead of Bryan. 

Also note that this map was an attempt to correct the original map, which has the correct year and candidate spellings... but also reversed numbers in Athens County.

One of these maps should be deleted; the other should be fixed. My attempts to override the existing data have only resulted in error messages, so... can you help? Wink

The best way to correct for these is to over-write the data with the correct data.  Can you describe for me the errors?  You should only need to check the two boxes on the bottom of the entry form to over-write file and over-write data.

I was receiving this message:

Apparently there was a tiny error in the data, but I removed it: final corrected map

Now that's fixed, is there any way to remove this map completely? It was a dumb mistake on my part to put in the wrong year, and there's no reason for this to stay on the Atlas.

I'd like to see county maps of the 1980 and 1970 Senate races in New York.

RBH posted 1970 on Atlas some time ago:



But I noticed that the mouse-over text for (I believe) MO, NC, VT, and WV all display every candidate as "0".

Also (and this is a very minor complaint), the map keys for some states aren't quite accurate. For example, the Utah key doesn't have shadings for the independent candidate and the Louisiana keys display every red/blue shading from >50% to >90%.

Other than those quibbles, great work. Smiley
