Below are maps of the election day in-precinct vote for 2014 Alaska Governor's race.  Note that this does not reflect the early, absentee or questioned votes, which are not fully in yet and are only allocated by House District, not precinct.  The Independent/Democratic ticket of Walker/Mallott is currently leading the Republican ticket of Parnell/Sullivan 47.9%-46.3%.  The election day in-precinct vote was won by Walker/Mallott by a much closer 47.2%-46.8% margin.

Note that the white lines are precinct boundaries, the black lines House District boundaries, and the yellow lines county equivalent boundaries.

Statewide


As always, the statewide map emphasizes the sparsely populated, rural bush precincts at the expense of the areas of the state where most people actually live.  Here are precinct maps of the in-precinct election day vote in the 4 largest municipalities:

Anchorage


Walker won the Anchorage election day in-precinct vote 48.5%-46.3%.  He made inroads into areas of South Anchorage that usually vote Republican.  

Mat-Su Borough


Parnell won the Mat-Su election day in-precinct vote 56.8%-36.9%.  Like most Republicans, he won all Mat-Su precincts except Talkeetna.   His margins were slightly off compared to most Republican candidates, though.

Fairbanks North Star Borough


Walker won the Fairbanks North Star Borough election day in-precinct vote 49.2%-45.6%.  As is typical for Republicans in Fairbanks, Parnell was strongest in the North Pole area and the eastern part of the borough.  Walker was strongest in the areas around the University of Alaska-Fairbanks and the western part of the borough.

Juneau


Walker won the Juneau election day in-precinct vote 55.5%-40.2%.  Parnell ran ahead of Republican Senate candidate Dan Sullivan, winning all of Juneau's suburban Mendenhall Valley.

By County Equivalent


For completeness' sake, here's a map of the 2014 Alaska Governor election day in-precinct results by county equivalent.   Absentees, early and questioned votes were not allocated to the county equivalents.  All of the vote is not in yet and allocating those votes to some county equivalents is an inexact science because those votes are broken down by House District instead of by precinct.

The absentee and questioned vote is still out from all over the state.  The in-precinct vote is in.  Walker should win.  His vote percentage slightly increased when Alaska counted some absentees, questioned and the remaining early vote on Tuesday.

I got the Alaska shapefile and election day vote data from the Alaska Division of Elections' website.  I import the vote data into a spreadsheet and use a formula to shade each precinct or county equivalent to the winner by percentage (by basically creating a new column with the highest percentage won, then adding 1 to Walker's percentage in any precinct he won so that it will be colored green in my map program).  I then save the spreadsheet in a format that can be read by a mapping program called MapWindow GIS, and use the Atlas Color Scheme to color the precincts for the winner and percentage.
