Turkey Election Maps

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is set to remain Turkey's president after winning yesterday's presidential election. A close referendum last year (which many think was fraudulent) gives the president extraordinary new powers. These include the power to appoint senior judges and to issue decrees with the force of law.

The Daily Sabah's Election Results page has an interactive map which shows the Presidential and Deputy President election results in each electoral region. Regions where Erdoğan got the most votes are shown in red on the Daily Sabah's map. You can hover over the individual regions on the map to view the percentage of votes cast for each candidate.

The Star also has an interactive map of the 2018 Turkish Election results. Their Election Results page includes a map which allows you to drill down to show the results in individual electoral wards. For example you can view a map of Istanbul which shows the results in each electoral district in the capital.

Both the Daily Sabah and The Star have close ties to Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
