Great job.  Do you happen to know the name of the Obama precinct in the south?  I'm looking at a map and it doesn't look like there's much "there" there

The one Obama precinct in the south of the county is number 376: Hickiwan. There were only 29 votes for president in the precinct of which Obama received 17 and McCain 12.

The populated part of that precinct is Gila Bend Indian Reservation (an outlying bit of Tohono O'odham).

Yep, looks like the village of Kaka.

Weird turnout patterns, was 40-4 Kerry in 2004 with 65 registered voters.  Which actually was not especially bad turnout for a place like that -- wonder what happened this year.  Small sample, o/c, but still a little odd.

Maybe they had a reason to like John McCain.

Almost certainly, although it's weird that turnout nearly halved even though their registered voter count increased.  (Phantom registrations?  Mail delivery on reservations is...well, yeah.)

Both of those counties have a ridiculous number of precincts. Maricopa took me the better part of a week, and that had 1142 precincts. Just looking at Allegheny is terrifying. I could easily do a town map for each of those counties (Milwaukee for sure), but a precinct map would be difficult, though I suppose not impossible.

Realistic,

I have a MapWindow shading file for both Atlas colors and one percent margins.  What I do is then take a spreadsheet of the results, and use Excel sorting to code D50/R70/whatever, and then sort it back to the original.  Then, if the shapefile DBF matches the precinct orders (or can be sorted to), you can just paste them in.  Saves a lot of effort.

Not sure if any of the shapefiles you're using are amiable to that, but with enough clever data-sorting, even the hardest shapefiles are generally "only" a few hours.

Here is a Milwaukee County Town Map. If I can find a current precinct shapefile, I will do the map.


Thank you for the tip, Alcon. Smiley

Thank you! And just as a thought my hometown, or village, Greendale, went for McCain. And for those that are curious my hometown is the smaller piece on the right side above the big town on the bottom left.

For the record, Greendale Village voted:

John McCain: 4768 (53.36%)
Barack Obama: 4063 (45.47%)
Other (Mostly Nader): 104 (1.16%)

The Wayne County Clerk's website has not been working for the past few days, and Michigan doesn't have town or precinct results on the SoS's website, so for the moment, I am unable to make one.

I could sure use a San Francisco map...

I will see what I can find. I know where to get the results, but a shapefile will be more difficult to acquire. I have found one. Smiley

My last map of the day: Proposition 8 in SF County, CA. There are some very interesting differences between the Presidential results and this one.


The darker grey county at the bottom left is a tie.

Nicely done Smiley  Here's the same with neighborhoods, and comments:

(Dark blue indicates an area was notably pro, otherwise it's light blue)



I may be overestimating the Asian effect, since Asians tend not to vote...

No idea what's going on by the Art Museum (unusually Republican too, seniors?), or at the Portrero Heights Rec Center precinct (not at all Republican).

% black map of San Francisco explains a lot. Looks like all four of Alcon's question mark areas have large black populations.

Maybe its just me, but I think the fact that San Fran has a neighborhood called "Tenderloin" is just too good. 

I'm also somewhat amazed to discover the that city even has any black people.  I figured they had successfully shoved them all into Oakland, where the rich, white, "tolerance police", liberals could safely look down upon them from a distance without threat to property values.
