The Alternative Voting Map

The Telegraph AV Map

The UK yesterday held a referendum on whether to change the way it votes for government to the alternative voting (AV) system. The Telegraph newspaper has created a Google Map to show what the 2010 UK general election might have looked like if it had been held under AV.

The Telegraph have used the results of a survey asking voters how they would rank the parties in order of preference if a new AV electoral system was introduced. They have then used this data to try and predict how the 2010 UK general election might have panned out under the alternative voting system.

The map lets you view the real results of the 2010 election and the adjusted results.
