Ever wondered what a political map of Australia looks like at booth level? We can take the GPS positions of the polling places at the last election and plot them over a map of the federal electoral boundaries for 2007. They’re colour coded so that the darker the red, the higher the ALP two party preferred, the darker the blue the higher the Coalition two party preferred and the yellow booths are the marginal booths where the ALP TPP was between 48.8% and 51.3%. Also, the independents are in the blue column. I’ve also colour coded the electorates – light pink for Labor held and light blue for non-Labor held. Just click on the images to expand them.
