I have been playing around with Shapefiles  these last couple of weeks. So I got the most recently available Zambia GDM Shapefiles , made a few modifications to take into account Muchinga Province and new districts, and subsequently merged the DBF file with the 2011 presidential elections results . While I have been exclusively using R packages like maptools , I spent the last few minutes working with Google Fusion Tables  and came up with the interactive map below.
The map basically shows regional vote distribution for the 2011 Zambian presidential elections. It is interactive—clicking on a specific district pops up detailed 2011 vote-centric statistics for that district.
