2008 Real Time Elections Map


As my first project at FOX News I had three months until election day 2008 to build an interactive elections map. Toward the middle of the project I realized we could do real time polling with our data, so we did. On election night this map polled for updated data every 10 seconds (thanks to relief from akamai) and would color the states as well as change vote amounts according to the freshly squeezed data. This map alone got ~1.4 billion hits election night!
