San Antonio elections 2015: by the numbers

Maps and images by Sophia Parafina.

From Sophia Parafina, data janitor and geographer, who’s been putting her map-making skills to use in the wake of Saturday’s election:

Above: Side-by-side comparison of early voting and election day turnout. Quite a number of high turnout precincts flipped. Mike Villareal took territory from Taylor and Van de Putte, and Taylor also took precincts from Van de Putte. Turnout for the runoff is predicted to be low. Every vote will count, especially for Van de Putte.

 

Early Voting:

Early voting turnout percentage and which candidate won the precinct. In this map, the precincts that each candidate won are in the following colors.

Adkisson is yellow
Taylor is green
Van De Putte is blue
Villareal is red

The darker the color, the higher the voter turnout.

What’s interesting is that Mike Villareal was able to flip precincts in the NE and NW from both Van De Putte and Taylor in the general election. King-maker indeed.

 

Election Day:

Voter turnout percentage and which candidate won the precinct. In this map, the precincts that each candidate won are in the following colors.

Adkisson is yellow
Taylor is green
Van De Putte is blue
Villareal is red

Voter turnout percentage is represented by a gradient of gray. The darker the gray, the higher the turnout. The highest turnout is > 20% the lightest is < 5%. Villareal and Taylor had a quite a number of high turnout precincts. Van De Putte will need those precincts to win.
