Caliper Corporation Maps Presidential Results by County for 2000 Election

NEWTON, MASSACHUSETTS - Visit and click the Elections 2000 link to view the latest presidential results by county. You can use the zoom and pan tools to move around the map, or click the "Find" link and enter an address, ZIP Code, or city and state to find a particular county. You can also use the Info tool to see the results for a specific county.

The color theme shows the margin of victory for each candidate, and the pie charts, visible when the map is zoomed in, show the breakdown of votes for the Democratic, Republican, Reform, and Green parties. The larger the pie chart, the more votes cast in that county. The data source is the Associated Press.
