Historical Regional Voting Pattern in Past Zambia Presidential Elections

Wanting to do something ‘worthwhile’ while procrastinating—no pun intended, I dug into the past six—1991, 1996, 2001, 2006, 2008 and 2011—Zambian presidential election results [1], collated the data and then mapped regional (district-level) results, just as I did in for the 2011 results [2]. I thought it was funny that back in 1991,  Kenneth Kaunda ONLY had majority votes in Eastern Province.

I thought an animated GIF would be more appealing in visually presenting the results; incidentally, I was surprised as to how easy it is to do this using ImageMagic [3]. I have also included a gallery of the individual results.
