Greek Referendum Maps

Today Greece voted overwhelmingly to reject the bailout conditions put to the country by the European Central Bank, the European Union and the International Monetary Fund.

The Guardian and the Greek Ministry of Interior both have interactive maps of the results showing the percentage of 'yes' and 'no' votes in each region. The maps show that in every single region in Greece more people voted 'no' than 'yes'.

One of the closest results seems to have been in central Athens, where only 53% voted 'no'. However the lack of a zoom button on both maps means its a little tricky to actually pick out central Athens.

The little grey area on both maps is the self-governed region of Mount Athos. Presumably Athos didn't participate in the referendum. The region doesn't allow women to enter the peninsula, so presumably democracy is out of the question as well.
