Visualize the U.S. Election: The Results Are In!
The results for our Visualize the U.S. Election challenge are in, and the winning visualization is Balance of Power by Felix Gonda. Congratulations! This was Visualizing's first challenge using an API, and we're thrilled with the results. We encourage you to continue challenging yourselves to create visualizations using APIs and live data sets. We look forward to seeing your work!
Covering presidential and congressional elections from 1856 to 2012 and analyzing both polling and election data, judges noted the scope and variety of the data presented in the interactive project. Most remarked upon, however, was that the project did something new, bringing out interesting and novel aspects to the data, especially the capacity to see changes over time.
Thank you to all who participated! And a special thanks to our judges Mark Blumenthal, Simon Jackman, Andrei Sheinkman, and Amanda Terkel. With November right around the corner, make sure to check out our gallery for more visualizations around the election — and feel free to share your visualization for us to include!
