Pakistan Election Maps


The results of yesterday's election in Pakistan are beginning to come in. Early results suggest that the ex-cricket star Imran Khan is currently in the lead but may fall short of an overall majority.

Al Jazeera's Pakistan Elections map is showing the results live as they are released. The cartogram map view represents each of the 272 election seats as a hexagon. Each hexagon is colored to show the winner in the seat when the result has been announced. The Al Jazeera map includes the option to view the election results for 2013 and 2008.

BBC Urdu also has a live election map for the Pakistan election. The BBC's election map is the only one I've seen which shows a proper geographical view. On the BBC's map each constituency is colored by the winning candidate. You can also click on a seat to view the number of votes cast for the winning candidate. The map also includes an option to view the 2013 election results in each constituency.

The Daily Pakistan's General Election 2018 map shows each constituency as a dot. Each dot is colored to show the winner in that constituency. If you hover over an individual constituency's dot you can view the number of votes cast for the winning candidate. The Daily Pakistan interactive also shows a running  total of the number of seats won by each party.
