New site shows history of Presidential elections
A project called "Voting America United States Politics, 1840-2004" is now online, courtesy of the Digital Scholarship Lab at the University of Richmond. The website provides cinematic & interactive maps and analysis of the U.S. Presidential elections from 1840-2004. This unique resource focuses on election data to the county level, helping users understand the nuances of our electoral history. It allows users to compare elections and see the significance of individual elections by geographic region, political party, voter turnout, voter demographics and more in a stimulating visual environment.
