    And here's all of Southern Ontario, following what I think is the most reasonable definition (points south of Lake Nipissing and the French River). On this, red stands for unitary authorities (single-tier municipalities and separated municipalities, in Ontarian legalese), while white are...

    Well, it's not huge, so that makes perfect sense.

    Well, this is suddenly happening. The year is 1917, as can be surmised from the relative equilibrium between the big three parties (in the south, anyway) plus the strong but very region-specific Left Socialists.

    I've been unable to find data for the 1998 municipal election in Montreal, the last pre-merger one, but that's not a huge deal seeing as how it was very boring and basically just a rehash of the 1994 one, so here's that one. The thirty-year reign of Mayor Jean Drapeau and his personalist...

    Started a map of the old counties of Québec, which also formed the constituencies for the Legislative Assembly before the Quiet Revolution. As it stands I've done everything north of the river and west of Charlevoix - including the infamous strips of land around Trois-Rivières resulting from...

    Montréal-Est is 87% francophone, and home to a huge oil industry. AFAICT it is the only exception to the rule, though Dorval only has a narrow anglophone plurality.

    Guess how many of the demerged towns are primarily francophone.

    Here we are. The 2013 election, as well as a description of Montreal's slightly mental political structure, can be found here.

    Quebec local politics is basically what happens when the French tradition of incredibly opaque list names that change between each election meets the Anglo-American tradition of nonpartisan, personalist local government. In other words, it’s a complete mess.

    Actually I keep forgetting there's been a municipal election in Montréal, and actually quite an interesting one at that. Might get to work on that when I get home.

    Oh look, apparently Montréal-1 elected a Syndicalist in 1890.

    I'd quite like to dig in deeper - so far I've found maps going back to the 1992 distribution, but there's probably older descriptions lurking somewhere. I know the Library of Parliament website has descriptions of the federal constituencies going back to Confederation.

    That is the sénéchaussée de Poitiers (sénéchaussées secondaires : Civray, Saint-Maixent, Fontenay-le-Comte, Lusignan, Montmorillon, Niort, Vouvant séant à la Châtaigneraie), at 28 députés the largest constituency in this election after Paris. Even Dauphiné, undivided because its estates elected...

    Odds on the pre-1833 border won’t be tightly defined anyway. Anyway, the 1721 borders don’t include Viborg.

    Grønland will be gone the moment the working classes get the vote, but I don’t think any part of Christiania voted for Venstre IOTL.
