Election Maps

I was looking for an election map that was tallied by precinct and had a color code that indicated the percentage of the popular vote going one way or the other.

I didn’t find it.

But I did find a cool cartogram displaying the (projected) election results with the map shifted to indicate population sizes.

Ah, this is what I was looking for. This was a relatively famous map from 2004, the Purple America map. I look forward to seeing the 2008 results in a similar fashion. There’s a cool mouse-over map that shows the relative changes in the last 4 years.
