    That was a good election day - and so is this for the map, so thank you for it and the shoutout. :) I live in House District 41 and Senate District 20, for the record!

    Does anyone have a map for AK's House and Senate?

    WIP of the Belgian 2014 federal election. Should be finished in a couple of days. The political difference between Wallonia-Brussels and Flanders is very visible.

    A map of the Virginia Senate elections of 1947, done as a test of QGIS. Therefore, there isn't really anything other than the map itself.

    Interesting to see the pre-Reynolds district lines - do you know how the populations of the various districts looked? I can imagine the disparities being somewhat horrific.

    I'm afraid not, but Virginia was one of the few states to actually keep redistricting after every census, so it could have been far worse.

    This is the motto of the American South, isn't it?

    Map of the results of the 2014 Belgian federal election to the Chamber of Representatives. It shows the results at the constituency and communal level. Description of the parties to follow, but I think it's relatively straightforward.

    Wallonia 2014. These are to be the last elections with these constituencies, as in 2017, ECOLO and the PTB challenged the electoral constituencies before the Constitutional Court arguing that they hindered the representativity of the Wallonian Parliament. They won. As a result, the Wallonian Parliament passed a new electoral map merging the constituencies of the Luxembourg province and reworking those of the Hainaut province. However, the new division only passed with the support of PS, MR and cdH. ECOLO and PTB remain opposed to the new map.

    Also, the longer the constituency's name, the smaller the number of deputies it elected.

    Just asking, is there a Maryland precinct map I can play with? I could make do with a county map if no precinct map is available.

    If you are just looking for a map to play around with, there is always DRA. However, if you want more recent precinct maps, I recommend @JZTessler on Twitter. If you want a file that can be opened in GIS, just google 'Maryland Precinct shapefile' and you will get Marylands official gis page, md.gov/imap

    The reason I asked is because I can't seem to use DRA without my computer crashing. But @JZTessler provided usable data sets, so thank you for recommending him.

    Has anyone ever done a map of Austro-Hungarian elections? Is it even possible to attempt one?

    Well, there were never Austro-Hungarian elections - there were Austrian (or Cisleithanian) ones, Hungarian ones, and Croatian ones. The latter have some decent maps on Wikipedia.

    Has anyone made a map of the European Parliament elections by subdivision in each country?

    Apologies if this has been posted before, but I was really struck by how this 1990 Arizona Referendum on whether or not MLK day should be a state holiday lines up so closely with the 2018 Senate election - all the No counties went for McSally and all the Yes counties went for Sinema.

    Dose anyone have a or kniw where I can find the congressional results by state cumulative popular vote For the states that have officially certified their election results ( I’m looking at you North Carolina)? I know I could go to each states SoS site but I’d really rather not.

    I suppose this doesn't quite count as easily modifiable with paint programs, but this is the only OTL election map thread I know, so apologies. This map is actually easily editable and able to play around with in QGIS, though, so feel free to ask me for files!

    Anyway, here are the 2018 House of Representatives elections in the United States with a little bit of geographical and cultural flair on them in a different style I'm trying out. Hope it may be of interest to y'all. Enjoy! Done using QGIS with Natural Earth Data, National Map, and USGS data. PNG is over here because it's a very large file.

    The difficulty here is that the results aren't released by subdivision consistently.
