Election data and graphics

For those who are into both political data and graphics, be sure to look at the extensive Election 2006 section of the New York Times website. Data are gathered there from the Senate, House and Governor elections. The House page is particularly extensive. You can select districts to look at that meet a variety of criteria, see them on a map, and then see a summary of data about them on the right. The sliding chart at the top that looks a bit like a bar code compares the 2004 and 2006 results is also awesome. Note that many of the maps can be weighted by population for a different view of their importance.
