Real Time US Presidential Primary Results In Google Maps

Political and news junkies take note: Google mapped the results of yesterday’s New Hampshire U.S. presidential primary by candidate and county for both parties. There are also videos from YouTube of candidate victory or concession speeches. According to the Google LatLong blog, the results were presented last night in real time. You can also see the same results in Google Earth (screenshots below).

UPDATE #2: For 2008 election results, please see Election Results From The Search Engines & Beyond, published on November 4, 2008.

UPDATE: For Super Tuesday information, please see these posts from us since this article was written: Super Tuesday, Internet Style: How We’re Using the Web In the 2008 Elections; Google Elections: Super Tuesday Map And Twitter Updates; Ask Offers Smart (Election) Answers. A special live elections results map from Google as described in the first two of those articles in more detail can be found here.

Google has not formally made a commitment to do this for the rest of the presidential primaries, but it’s both interesting and valuable. Accordingly, I would imagine we’ll see this same data for the remaining primaries and for the general election in November.
