Mapping Historical Regional Voting Patterns of Zambia Presidential Election Results

More maps! This time around, we have generated historical maps for regional presidential election results. We think this provides a better understanding of regional voting patterns over the years. For each of the presidential elections held between 1991 and 2016, we visualise the final regional (READ: provincial) outcomes and, additionally, results by electoral administrative boundaries (READ: constituencies).

I have spent the last couple of weeks sieving through Zambia census data, as part of a personal project I am working on. With the looming presidential by-election, I decided to extend this analysis to include election results since democracy was re-introduced in 1991.
