One Dot, One Vote
One Dot For Every Voter is a map comparison of the 2011 and 2015 Chicago Mayoral Election Results. The map visualizes every voter in Chicago with a dot, colored by the candidate they voted for.
The slide control on the map allows you to compare this year's results with the 2011 mayoral election results. Switching between the two years on the map not only clearly shows the drop in turnout in this year's election but also shows where Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel lost voters this time around.
This blog post accompanying the map looks in a little more detail at the areas where Emanuel lost support in the 2015 election.
