Archive for the ‘voting’ tag
Here’s a visualization of the results of Canada’s recent election I’ve been working on.
The idea is to present the results in a way that allows you to explore in interesting ways. The data presented is pretty straightforward, with a group of coloured blobs representing the votes for each candidate in a riding.
I added one extra feature, a black ring that shows the votes for candidates other than the winner in each riding. This seemed particularly relevant for this election, where less than 38% of the popular vote went to the Conservatives yet they get to form the government.
You can explore the results:
- as an image (non interactive, but quick)
- through an applet (may not work on all browsers. I’m working on it)
- or as a downloadable application Windows, Mac or Linux
