This has to be one of the coolest maps I've seen in a long time. It plots the 2008 vote for president by election precinct. This amazing map tells the story of political divisions and voting patterns in the United States; patterns that will very likely play out again next week. Be sure to zoom in on your state and look for anomalies. (No data for Oregon, which I assume is because they use all mail-in voting.)
