Ukraine Election Map

A comedian who plays the president of Ukraine on television is the favorite to become the next real president of Ukraine. With just over 80% of the votes counted in yesterday's Ukraine election the comedian Volodymyr Zelenskiy is in the lead with over 30% of the votes. He has almost twice the percentage of votes as the current president Petro Poroshenko.

The Presidential Elections in Ukraine 2019 map shows the election results in each voting district in Ukraine. Polling stations are shown on the map colored by the presidential candidate who won the most votes in that district. Volodymyr Zelenskiy seems to have had much more appeal across the whole country than the current president, except in the north-west where Petro Poroshenko seems to have won most of the districts. You can click on individual polling booths on the map to view the turnout percentage and the total number of votes cast. You can also see the percentage of the votes cast in the district for each of the presidential candidates.

It looks like none of the candidates will get an overall majority after all the votes are counted. This means that a second round of voting will take place on 21 April. This will be a straight race between the two candidates with the most votes in yesterday's election. This means that former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko (currently in third place) will probably not be on the ballot.
