Why are there two different scales on the map? For deep red, Walker needed to get 70% or more, but for Barrett to get deep blue, only 65% was required. It also looks like one step in the scale was left out for Walker.

It's easy, Tom K., they even have to cheat to get a decent-looking defeat.

Nicely done, PATCH! Thanks for providing this information. I was out of town for the election (but voted before we left), and missed a lot of the details. It's interesting to see how folks voted on a community-by-community basis. Some of the differences are also kind of amazing.

Ditto, StaynConnected. I was also OOT, but voted early, and the dead tree coverage was pretty slim. Patch filled in some valuable and interesting detail.
