Here are maps of what I have been able to find so far for past presidential primaries. I was wondering if anyone could help find more data or if they knew where more data could be found. I've scoured the internet in all the usual places, State SOS and Election board websites, ourcampaigns.com, and online blue books, not to mention sending out probably hundreds of emails, and this is what I've come up with.

I have every primary state back to 1968 filled in (with a couple of exceptions) along with as much caucus data as I can find (most blank states, at least back until 1968, are caucus states and therefore have limited data available). Before 1968, I have much more limited data, but this is very much a work in progress, and I am adding new data as often as I can.

Occasionally you will see a state without variations in shade, which means that I do not know anything more than who won the county. Three states on the 2008 Democratic primary map have results displayed by legislative district rather than by county as this is the only data available (Alaska, Kansas, and North Dakota). North Dakota is also displayed as such on the 2008 Republican primary and 2004 Democratic primary maps. All Alaska maps are in House Districts.

I got all of the 1980 results except those for FL, GA, SD, KY, and MD from Rob who got them from a book whose title is escaping me. The FL, SD, and KY results were from SoS or Election Boards for those states while GA and MD were from state manuals/blue books/registers for 1981-82.

As for Ohio, 1996 came from the their SoS website, 1980 came from Rob, and 1984 came from the website Beyond Red and Blue.

Thank you! Smiley I've now updated 1980 with these results and will continue to work on others. Is there any way that you can get information on Missouri?

I only know the county winners, not the percentages, however. Wink

New Jersey had results through 1991 through last night, and through 1987 tonight

I went down to the UW library and found a book with a bunch of old returns in it (The same book Rob has). It was a reference book, so I copied a bunch of them that I thought were interesting.

The 3/8/1988 Democratic map is pretty interesting (MO, KY, OK, TX, AR, LA, MS, AL, GA, FL, NC, TN, MD, and VA held their primaries on the same day for the only time ever)

I updated it to show the current status of each map, and how many states I have yet to enter for each one.

Also, does anyone know anything about finding information for caucuses? I would imagine that such data would be scarce or non-existent and certainly not online.
