Maps of Southern States

The politics and political geography of Southern states can be just as interesting and distinctive as anywhere in the U.S. I have analyzed and mapped several recent elections in the South that show a different side of the region’s politics than the side that is commonly portrayed in the media.

One map that I have made is this one, comparing the results of the 2015 Public Service Commission elections in Mississippi to those of the 2012 Presidential election.

MS 15PSC results compared to 12Prez results

Some maps of Southern states that I have made include:

  • Alabama
    • 2008 and 2012 Presidential results by precinct in Jefferson County (Birmingham), and comparisons between the two
    • 2012 results by precinct for Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court in Jefferson County, and comparisons to presidential results
    • Racial demographics by precinct in Jefferson County
  • Florida
