    Here's something I threw together last night: the 2019 Rhenish election for my Führerreich TL. Since I only did the box for this rather than the whole page I might do wikiboxes for the parties as well

    Another infobox from my Führerreich TL, this time it's the Governor of Arkansas because why not

    Yes, his name is a reference to Dale Bumpers

    well he had to moderate something to be a viable candidate so he's toned down the rhetoric i guess

    i guess we get Bumpers 1996

    Well, I don’t really create them, I actually just modify them.

    To do this, find one of Wikipedia’s SVG maps (you can just take one from one of the OTL presidential elections, any will do) and download some kind of text editor — the one I use is Sublime Text, which is free.

    Save the map to your computer as an SVG, and open it up in your text editor.

    You’ll see, in the first dozen lines or so, a list of state abbreviations (e.g. “#RI, #MN, #GA, ...”) which is ended by a hexcode (“fill #[hexcode]”). Then, below that first list, you’ll see another list, ended by another hexcode. These lists determine how each state votes. To move a state from one party’s column to another, just move the state’s abbreviation to the other list. You can also change the party colors, etc., you get the idea.

    After that, you have the state defines, which define the borders of each state. You can also add new states and create “circles” if you want to split off a state’s electoral votes for congressional districts or faithless electors. I have no idea how to create a state define from scratch, so if I want to add a new electoral division I just copy a state define (say, ME-2 or PR) from another SVG file and paste it into the file I’m working on at the end of the state defines.

    Below that, you have the electoral votes for each state.

    Now, when it comes to inserting these maps into your infobox:

    If you have a Wikipedia account, you can just upload your new map directly from your desktop into the infobox that you’re working on. This takes about 15 seconds and gives you the best quality. However, in my later infoboxes I didn’t have this option because I got banned from Wikipedia. In this case, I would convert your SVG to a PNG and paste it onto your infobox once everything else is done.

    Another post for my Führerreich TL. It's the 2019 Danish presidential election (Denmark is a semi-presidential republic ITTL). I'm working on a legislative election for TTL's Denmark too

    This election was widely considered an upset, as the centre-left Republikanske Parti's dark horse candidate, Lea Ladefoged, won a narrow victory against the frontrunner and popular former Prime Minister, the centre-right Samlingspartiet's Ferdinand Kirkegaard

    Edit: forgot the map, so I posted it here

    How do you add that "Current TL:" thing at the bottom of a post?
