Hello, my name is Fuzzybigfoot.  I am a former poster from Dave Leip's US Election Atlas Forum (  As of late, I have decided to take leave from the Forum so that I may mingle with fellow map nerds on Daily Kos, and share my collected works with you.

Here are some samples:

1936 Congressional Elections:

Red=Dem Blue=GOP Green=Progressives (Wisconsin), Farmer Laborers (Minnesota)
Btw, Green=The Progressives in Wisconsin and California (although they were seperate parties in both states) and Farmer Laborers in Minnesota.  

1968 Presidential Election, results by congressional district:

And the 1972 Presidential Election by congressional district:

Anyways, most of my works are here @  Just FYI, a few of those maps were worked on by multiple Atlas Members.

Anyways, you may see that my maps use red for Democrats and blue for Republicans.  Sorry for the confusion, but this is the color scheme Dave and most posters (including me) use on the Atlas.

Plus, if you doubt my identity as the Atlas Forum Fuzzybigfoot, I posted my identity on the Facebook page I use here:

Recently we've been working on some precinct maps from the South, as well as the 2012 Presidential Election b/congressional district map (Which we made using the data from Daily Kos.  We are very greatful!)

So enjoy, and feel free to ask me ANY questions regarding these maps!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
