Just before the recent election, the Toronto Star published a map of the 2006 election in Toronto and its suburbs (with a bunch of random things circled and analyzed at the bottom, as you'll see):

*drools* Great find! I wish there was one for the Ottawa area, but meh. I've made poll maps for 3 Ottawa ridings anyways. This would be a good tool to make a gerrymandered map.

Elections Canada is awful. Though Elections Ontario took ridiculously long last year, too.

There's no way to actually know your poll unless you have the number.

Yeah, totally useless without maps except in ridings with a lot of small municipalities.

In 2006, they atleast gave a general area for the poll (normally naming the school/apartment block/etc. where it was located). Epic fail again, Elections Canada.

No they didn't; you're thinking of Elections Ontario.

Indeed. Elections Canada and Elections Quebec are fail. I think than the better one is Elections Alberta.

DGEQ's only redeeming thing is that they have census files for all provincial constituencies.

Elections Newfoundland is a fail site, too. But not as big an epic fail as Elections Canada.

Elections Canada gived us non-definitive poll results. after two months. Usually, we have to wait until final results, February 3th, 2008, this year.

DGEQ is more quick to give polls results.

That Toronto map came from this:
http://www.gpmurray-research.com/electoral-atlas/index.htm

...which I probably would have had months ago if it didn't cost that much. Maybe we could all chip in. Smiley

Why Elections Canada treats polling maps like the formula to Coke is beyond me.

Elections New Brunswick, to its credit, has a great site (if hard to navigate). I think Newfoundland and Quebec are the only provinces that don't put polling division maps up.

Back when I had access to the NDP activist site, I could check out all the poll maps (thus why I made a few, and uploaded some of them). Someday, I'll try and get that access back.
