A new digital history project: Mapping Early American Elections

"The Mapping Early American Elections team is pleased to launch the project website.

During this three-year project, funded by the Division of Preservation and Access at the National Endowment for the Humanities, we plan to blog about our process and progress. Our project is building on the New Nation Votes (NNV) collection of electoral returns, a project that was also funded by the NEH. Mapping Early American Elections is turning those election returns into a dataset which has a spatial component. Our dataset will offer researchers new opportunities to visualize and map the changing character of early American democracy as revealed through the country’s earliest elections, 1787 to 1825."

In May 2019, the Mapping Early American Elections team "is making their final release of maps, data, and essays for this project." The project offers interactive maps and visualizations of Congressional elections from 1787 to 1825.
