Mapping the Toronto Municipal Election

This Google Maps based 2014 Toronto Municipal Election map is a really nicely designed visualization of the recent Toronto elections. The map allows you to explore how each electoral ward voted and also provides information on a range of socio-economic data about each ward and subdivision.

If you mouse-over a ward subdivision on the map you can view a breakdown of the percentage of votes cast for each candidate. The voting breakdown also includes the percentage of votes cast for each candidate in the whole election ward and in the whole city. This means you can easily compare the voting record of each sub-division with the whole ward and with the overall results,

When you mouse-over a sub-division on the map you can also view data, beneath the map, on the education, income and occupation of voters in the selected ward.
