Congressional District Map Series Files – MICHIGAN (1970s-2010s)

This is it! The moment (some) of you (probably) have been waiting for! This is a file which contains all U.S. House maps for Michigan for each Decade of the last 5 decades (1970s, 80s, 90s, 2000s, 2010s).

Using the maps from Wikipedia, I hand-drew each map-in some cases the state is stretched, and in others it stays as true to it’s original shape as I can get it, but all maps are dutifully re-drawn to allow you to pop them in and use them in your very own Single State series! To anyone who asks me, no I do not intend to have the California map out soon. This is the biggest thing I’ve done since trying to do the scenario for Florida-which got deleted (sad).

Next state to get this treatment may either be West Virginia or Wisconsin, maybe even Arizona! Who knows? See you in the comments!

Please Remind Me

It may be the chemo or the monthly infusions I take for my cancer. But please remind me step by step, once we have created a scenario or in this case cleaned up a scenario how we save it and post it to here, so everyone else can access. Please list it in a step by step.

ALSO, has someone done an Illinois state map? I’d love to utilize it to set up a number of scenarios so everyone can play like the Thompson-Stevenson Gubernatorial battles of ’82/’86 or see if Barack Obama can win the Senate seat in the scrum of 2004.

THANKS!

2021 – Nova Scotia

The 2021 Nova Scotia general election is to be held on August 17, 2021, to elect members to the 64th General Assembly of Nova Scotia. 2021 sees 4 new ridings up for election and currently the Liberals are polling well and look set to be returned to government but what will happen during the campaign?

The campaign polling starts of with a Liberal lead and has a few events to shift the polls to the PCs which seems to lead to a much closer campaign at the end.

1959 – Alberta

The 1959 Alberta general election is to be held on June 18, 1959, to elect members of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta. Ernest C. Manning, in his fifth election as party leader and provincial premier hopes to lead the Social Credit Party to its seventh consecutive term in government. Previous to this election, the Social Credit government had done away with the Instant-runoff voting system in use in the rural constituencies, and the Single Transferable Vote system in Edmonton and Calgary, both of which had been in place since 1924. This brings Alberta in line with the other provinces using the First past the post systems.

1963 – Alberta

The 1963 Alberta general election is being held on June 17, 1963, to elect members of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta. The Social Credit Party, led by Ernest C. Manning is seeking its eighth consecutive term in government. Some Social Credit supporters are so confident of their party’s chances that they talk of winning “63 in ’63”, i.e., all 63 seats in the legislature in the 1963 election. Can opposition parties make an impact in this election and win seats?
