I know, I know, I haven’t been keeping up with the blog since the NZ election. After an intense launch period, with elections in Canada, the USA, New Zealand, the ACT and a number of by-elections, I’ve taken some time off, but I will be back.
I’ll be in Melbourne Saturday morning as results start coming in from the Victorian local council elections. The best source of coverage is this Pollbludger thread. I have made three Google Earth maps that may have been of interest to people.
- The first one colour-codes all Victorian wards according to how many councillors are elected in that ward. Red means 1, Yellow means 2, Blue means 3, Greens means 4, and Purple areas are councils elected without wards.
- The second one colour-codes all Victorian wards where Greens are running.
- The third one colour-codes all Victorian LGAs. Green areas have a sitting Greens councillor, and blue areas have a Greens candidate running.
