Mapping the Iraqi Election

Mapping the Iraqi Election


Feb. 13, 2005

Update: This was a mapping tool for the 2005 Iraqi election. It is now obsolete. A screenshot of the old tool is shown below, but today I would build something like this in d3.

Today the Independent Electoral Commission of Iraq released provisional election results1, shown below superimposed on maps of Iraq’s 18 governorates. Maps are shown for each of the 8 parties that won more than than 45,000 votes. Out-of-Country (OCV) votes are shown in red.
