    Maps that Hominid makes

    Ooh, interesting concept! Might just be on my end, though, but the maps appear to be missing.

    Caprice's Maps and What-Not

    I did a write-up for a setting I have yet to name. -------------- Due to personal reasons, you have found yourself in the foyer of an oddly well-kept house, the only one you could find for what seems like miles around. You put your coat on what you assume is a coat rack, dust off the wooden...

    I tried that really early on, but for congressional elections the white county borders ended up standing out more than the congressional district borders, so I added the outlines to the districts to make them hopefully stand out even more.

    Caprice's Maps and What-Not

    My lines are perfectly aliased, though; I just have the white pixel-thick borders for a dual purpose: to better show district boundaries in cases where the subdivisions are mapped, and to better show the district labels and boundaries against one another when the district is filled with a dark...

    Caprice's Maps and What-Not

    In Rhode Island state legislative elections, the Republicans generally do not seem to contest a majority of seats. So I'm also making Wikipedia Singapore election page-style maps of who's running against the Democrats in any given district.

    Rhode Island is next on the election database schedule, as I am presently unable to access the results for Michigan in 1990. Here's a town map.

    Caprice's Maps and What-Not

    Michigan State House districts in use for the 1980s reapportionment decade. Depending on definitions, this might be the first fully reformed apportionment, as the 1964 and 1972 reapportionments had somewhat different rules.

    The closest state house election in Michigan history, in which it took days to weeks of recounts to discover that the seats were in fact tied.

    Thanks! Rumsey's stuff sometimes works, but it's rare to find street names on their maps. Usually, they're good for old township boundaries and sometimes city wards during the 19th century.

    Caprice's Maps and What-Not

    I figured I'd make a tutorial on how I make district maps from boundary descriptions, with Michigan's senatorial map in use from 1983 to 1995 as an example. Boundary descriptions are found in a few places; usually, these are passed statutes or legislative manuals. In Michigan's case, they are...

    Here's a rare election in which the Republicans got more votes but less seats than the Democrats. Also, now that all the data is calculated, here's a table of the partisan lean in Michigan since 1994.

    This sort of thing is why there are only five parties in Michigan nowadays. Each party's general position on fusion tickets is as follows: - The Michigan Western Alliance requires that any group wanting to form a fusion ticket abide by the party's manifesto at all times. This has the effect of...

    The Kingdom of Michigan is best described as using a semi-proportional system of representation. While the Webster method is generally used, there are a number of counties or groups thereof (henceforth referred to as county groups) that are only allotted one seat in the 310-seat apportionment...

    I made an election map for my TL. More will come shortly, including for the Legislative Assembly, whose members are proportionally allocated somewhat by county according to the results of the Legislative Council election.

    Made a picture of James L. Hudler (who's Michigan PM in my TL) in a suit and tie, because I could find like one good picture of him and he was dressed semi-casually in it. The picture is edited from State Senator Jim Runestad's official portrait.

    Caprice's Maps and What-Not

    Has to do with some third party (the Natural Law Party) getting 10-20% of the vote in that county and nowhere else in the 90s (I think because the quasi-cult they were affiliated with had a big HQ there); since some of my TL's election results are based on third-party performances, I decided to...
