    I've made electoral maps of Japan for my TL. I put a lot of hard work into those.

    I'll be sure to check them out (assuming I can find them, I have an ability to not find things)

    thanks!
    It took many hours making the base map and doing districts. Atop all of that I also had to fill everything in for the actual election and do Paint editing.
    It's gotten quite easy. Repetition helps to make things easier to do. But if you want to do it done right you need to take time.

    No votes were polled in the areas in white, and the Convention agreed that those would be zones of no combat, except for the one county in Arkansas that literally went to war before holding the vote and was therefore disqualified (leaving one vacant seat).

    I came up with a map for the 2017 presidential election in which Fillon doesn't encounter the scandal regarding his wife and wins the presidency.

    The 1971 Georgia lordship election resulted in the victory of the New Georgia Coalition's candidate, James Carter of the Liberal Party. Carter is the incumbent Lord-Governor, holding the record for longest reign at 47 years, 7 months, 7 days and counting.

    Carter won the election by unexpectedly uniting most of the opposition parties into a coalition. This stunned the Executor Party. Carter himself is a member of the Liberal Party. The New Georgia Coalition calls for modernizing the state by implementing a major infrastructure program, along with electoral reform to ease the disenfranchisement of afrogeorgians throughout the realm.

    He beat Herman Talmadge, who secured the nomination of the Executor Party. The Executor Party has typically held government, occasionally with supply from a minor party in the legislature. However, they did not expect Carter's New Georgia Coalition in the face of the Harold I resignation and scandals.


    Elected: James I Carter (New Georgia Coalition/Liberal Party)

    Using DRA's beta 2020 system, I've come up with some districts for that Texas thing I did back during Christmas and New Year for the next decade. Texas is currently forecasted to get 3 additional seats which in my thing would be in Dallas Fort Worth, Houston and on the American - Mexican border.

    This map shows the 2008 results (don't ask me why DRA's beta 2020 system still used 2008 data for elections). The white district is the 22nd which was split 50 - 50.

    MoralisticCommunist apologises for the delay, as he had a couple of weeks without his computer and that delayed South Virginia. But it's up now.

    Political Positions of State Governments

    South Virginia, the more Confederate leaning half of the old state of Virginia, had long been a Democratic stronghold before it became more contested following the decline in the Democrats popularity in the 1980s. However the Democratic party in 2018 is now at its lowest level of support in the state since the very founding of the party, due to opposition from the far right.

    In order to understand the outcome of the 2018 election one must first cover the 2016 election and the 2017 Charlottesville riots.

    The 2016 election, seen by many as a rise in right wing nationalism, populism, and xenophobia was caused by the continuation of the Second Great Depression and the Labor coalition's inability to solve this crisis. Ever since the stock market collapsed in 2009 when news of several investment banks being on the verge of bankruptcy was leaked to the public the world's economy has been in shambles. While Labor and their coalition have tried a wide variety of economic stimulus packages to revitalize the economy, all of their attempts have failed and even in 2016 the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 had yet to return to their pre-2009 levels. With the economy refusing to recover from this massive economic crisis, large swathes of the population turned towards xenophobia and began to blame the slow recovery of the economy on immigration, which had continued to increase throughout the 2010s as the capitalist Latin American countries were hit especially hard by the Second Great Depression and vast numbers of their citizens fled to Gran Colombia and the USA, depending on their ideological leanings.

    All of this xenophobia lead to a massive surge in support for anti-immigrant parties, mainly the Democrats and Social Credit. In South Virginia this meant that the old Labor-Black Baptist-Green government was replaced by a Democratic-Republican one. However, for some on the right the Democrats did not go far enough. A growing movement of white nationalists, veiling themselves as "patriotic libertarians" had begun to emerge under the leadership of Richard Bannon, a rising young star among the far right community who's video lectures on the evils of immigration had grown rapidly in popularity throughout the 2010s. A native to Norfolk, Virginia, he ran as the leader of a new "patriotic libertarian" party called Defending Values and Freedom in the 2016 election, though the party was not as successfully as he might have hoped, gathering only two seats in the state house.

    Nevertheless, the DVF had dreams of one day gaining a majority in the Virginian house, and in order to accomplish that goal they would need to create incidents which cowed enough of the population into xenophobia that they would be willing to vote for a "patriotic libertarian" party. Thus the idea of a "Right United" rally was created, to have old guard Klansmen and new guard identitarians unite and rally together in the fairly liberal city of Charlottesville Virginia, chosen for its central location and due to the fact that the city held the University of Virginia, whose students the right hoped to sway to the cause of white nationalism.

    Of course the people of Charlottesville had no intention to convert to white nationalism and did not take kindly to the thousands of white supremacists who descended upon their city to chant death to all minorities. As soon as the marchers began to arrive on April 20th they began to met with counter protesters who chanted back anti-fascist and anti-racist slogans at them. The two sides continued to shout insults at one another until one angry Klansman pulled out a gun and shot one of the counter protesters straight in the face. Thus all hell then broke loose.

    The subsequent riot, or battle as some on the far right and far left have since termed it, lasted for ten days and left over 766 people dead. The white supremacists were aided by the fact that the majority of nearby police forces joined the white nationalists under the guise that they had a "legitimate permit to protest" while the antifa forces were aided when cells of the Renewed Black Panther Party (Marxist-Leninist-Guevarist), a small and radical offshoot of the Black Panthers, began smuggling weapons into the city. On April 22nd of 2017 National Guard forces attempted to enter the city for the first time, but their transport helicopters was shot down by white supremacists manning Stinger missile launchers, leading to the deaths of 22 guardsmen. Subsequent attempts by federal troops to enter the city on foot similarly failed until April 30th when strategic bombers leveled both the white nationalist and antifascist camps, killing many senior leaders on both sides and allowing US Army tanks to roll into the streets of Charlottesville leading to the surrender of the two insurgent sides.

    With many South Virginians shocked at this massive bloodshed all major parties were quick to condemn the violence, though the DVF and United Left parties defended some actions taken by the two camps. Sympathy for the side of the DVF began to rose however when an Islamic terrorist bombed a church in Portsmouth, killing 49, and the DVF claimed that the public should have listened to the Right United marchers who had predicted that Muslims and "the Left" would begin attacking and killing Christians in their churches. While the white nationalists were obviously not prophetic psychics, many believed the DVF at their word and begun to calling for more immigration controls and for "the Left" to stop their attacks on Christianity.

    Later in March of 2018 when a white nationalist terrorist killed dozens at the biggest Muslim mosque in Richmond the Republican-Democratic coalition government responded by blocking the white nationalist forum website, v8rginia, to prevent anymore planned attacks by the members of this forum. While most parties applauded this action against terrorist cells, the DVF attacked the Republicans and Democrats for the ban, saying while they absolutely denounced the terrorist actions of those on v8rginia they defended their right to freedom of speech. While some criticized the DVF for their hypocrisy, considering how they encouraged attacking leftists merely for saying anti-racist slogan, the wider public only heard the DVF side of the story and many began to switch from the Democratic party to the DVF.

    With polling indicating that the DVF could gain dozens of seats and possibly even enough to form a majority with the Democrats and Republicans calls to ban the Defending Values and Freedom party began to rise. The first to call for banning the party was the United Left, back in 2017 when the DVF defended the actions of its own party members who participated on the side of Klansmen as "self defense." Then the Black Baptist Bloc called for the banning of the party following their opposition to the banning of v8rginia, noting how the site had radicalized other white nationalist terrorists in the past, including one terrorist who shot up a black church. Finally the Greens called for banning the party when the DVF starting calling for shutting down the sociology and philosophy departments of South Virginian universities for being "Cultural Marxist indoctrination centers."

    Nevertheless the freedoms offered by the American constitution preventing any such banning of the DVF and in the 2018 election a shocking collapse of the Democrats took place, falling from a high of 57 seats they received only 23 in this election. Meanwhile the DVF shot up tremendously, gaining 31 seats to rise to an impressive 33 seats in the house.

    Luckily for the minority population of South Virginia most political parties refused to enter into an alliance with the DVF, and a big tent coalition of the Republicans, Labor, and Greens was formed instead. However, just one month after the election fourteen simultaneous terrorist attacks on mosques, synagogues, and universities occurred across the state, with the website v8rginia releasing a manifesto stating that it had begun a "race war" in the state of South Virginia and would continue to attack "Cultural Marxists" until the DVF were allowed into government as "the will of the people" demanded. While the DVF has denied all connections to v8rginia they have also continued to demand that they be allowed to join into a government coalition and have said that "2nd amendment people" might do something about it if they remain relegated to the opposition.

    Government:
    Republicans - The party of big business, while not much of a thing back in the late 1800s ever since the 1980s they have been a strong force in the northern and western parts of the state. Dominated by the conservative Buckley faction, they are only slightly to the left of the Democrats on most social issues, including immigration. Nevertheless, as soon as the 2018 results came out the Republicans, being the good businessmen they were, were quick to ditch the Democrats and form the only truly possible coalition with Labor and the Greens.
    Labor - The party of urban African-Americans, minorities, and union workers, much like in other Upper South states their main base of support comes from the urban centers, as opposed to the rural Democrats. While they had surged wildly in popularity in the 2010 election ever since they have been steadily dropping in support, and this election was no exception as they dropped from 57 seats to 38 seats, losing many voters who viewed their opposition to white nationalism as not strong enough.
    Greens - A center left party which is more socially left wing than the Labor party, while not outright supporting the actions of antifascist groups they have begun to sympathize more and more with them and are one of the three parties calling for banning the DVF.

    Opposition:
    Defending Values and Freedom - A white nationalist group who prefers to call themselves "patriotic libertarians" they are now the largest white supremacist party in the entire country by number of voters. With their leader Richard Bannon hosting his own news network, KnowledgeCrusade, that constantly puts out propaganda blaming immigrants and "the Left" for the ills of society they have now begun to claim that they deserve to be a part of the South Virginian government despite obtaining less votes than both the Republicans and Labor, simply because they had the largest upswing in voteshare and thus represent the "true" will of the people.
    Democrats - The party of the South and social conservatism, they lost immense swaths of their voter base to the DVF after seeming weak on immigration. The party has since said that while it is not willing to be a part of any alliance with the DVF it would support a "dialogue" with them.
    Black Baptist Bloc - The party of conservative and centrist African Americans, they greatly increased their voteshare in this election as many African-Americans began to worry Labor might ignore the issue of rising white nationalism. The Black Baptist Bloc on the other hand has continued to rail against the legitimacy of the DVF, citing the many former Klansmen who now serve as their legislators, and have joined the Greens and United Left in calls to ban the party, despite the party leaders' concerns about the Greens and United Left's "anti-theism."
    Constitution - A far right Christian party, they grew somewhat in their support from 2016 to 2018, benefiting mainly from those who saw the Democrats as too weak but also the DVF as too radical. Constitutionists are also the only ones in South Virginia willing to ally with the DVF, holding consistent principles with the Constitution-Fourteen Word Alliance that exists in the state of Adams.
    United Left - A far left party which unites all the various tendencies of socialism and communism into one broad front that opposes capitalism, they gained seats for the first time in 2018, largely due to the rise of antifascist defense groups formed in the wake of the Battle for Charlottesville, one of which managed to stave off an attack on the rebuilt University of Virginia that occurred one month after the 2018 election, killing the three white nationalist terrorists who fired upon the school with a truck mounted minigun. Nevertheless, these number of volunteers at these antifa groups remains small and with Labor and the BBB continuing their duopoly on labor unions the UL remains a minor force in the state.

    So, if you don't mind me asking you, exactly what changes did you make? And what would the vote by demographic look like?

    The main change I made was making the Solid South less solid, since I don't see how any candidate could get 80-90% in those states in modern times with fulll enfranchisement. I also made the Mountain West and Plains states less Democratic since I have a hard time seeing any Democrat doing as well in those states as FDR did, save for Montana which is about D+29 here. as for the vote by demographic, I'd guess that the white vote is something like 60-40 D, the black vote 95-5 D, the Hispanic vote 85-15 D, and the Asian/Other vote is likely around 80-20 D. I think the Democrat wins the white vote in every state they win with the possible exception of Idaho which only goes Democratic by about 1.5%.
