I want to share information on where in the state those votes are coming from (all based on unofficial returns). These charts and maps are pretty detailed so you might need to click on the chart or map you're reading to see a bigger version.
First overall turnout:
- 2002 : 5 million voters overall
- 2004 : 7.5 million voters overall
- 2006 : 4 million voters overall
New York City (in red) 74,221 votes, 49%For comparison here's that same breakdown of the WFP's 2002 votes:
Upstate (in yellow) 55,437 votes, 36%
Metro Suburbs (in blue) 22,295, 15%
New York City (in red) 53,557 votes, 59%And the WFP's 2004 votes:
Upstate (in yellow) 24,901 votes, 28%
Metro Suburbs (in blue) 12,075, 13%
New York City (in red) 67,593 votes, 40%Our gubernatorial vote in New York City continues to go up, while the proportion of our vote from Upstate and in the Metro Suburbs is growing (comparing 2006 to 2002) .
Upstate (in yellow) 69,141 votes, 41%
Metro Suburbs (in blue) 31,985, 19%
Here's a county-by-county breakdown of where the WFP's 2006 vote came from. You'll probably need to click on this chart to be able to read it.
This map shows a county-by-county breakdown of the WFP's percentage of the vote total (so if 100 people voted and 5 voted on the WFP line that's 5%). The redder a county the higher the WFP percentage of the vote in that county.
This map goes county-by-county and shows the change of the WFP's percentage of the vote total from 2002 to 2006. The darker the county, the more the WFP percentage of the vote increased in that county.
Now it's your turn: what do you make of this information?
