US History: Mapping Early American Elections Project Website Launches

The Mapping Early American Elections project is now underway at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (RRCHNM) located at George Mason University.

From a RRCHNM Blog Post:

RRCHNM is pleased to announce the launch of the Mapping Early American Elections project website.

During this three-year project, funded by the Division of Preservation and Access at the National Endowment for the Humanities, we build on the New Nation Votes (NNV) collection of electoral returns, also funded by the NEH.


By the end of the grant, we will create and publish multiple maps and visualizations representing Congressional and state legislative elections for 24 states. The website will include a map browser inviting users to explore early American political history in exciting new ways.
