A close run – How Austria voted in the overturned presidential run-off (results as of 23 May 2016)
The map shows the results of the (later) overturned Austrian 2016 presidential run-off at the scale of municipalities. Alexander van der Bellen, the candidate backed by the Green Party, received 50.35% and won by a narrow margin of 31. 026 votes ahead of Norbert Hofer of the far-right Freedom Party (blue).
The territories have been re-sized to represent the respective number of persons eligible to vote. Consequently, the map represents the actual size of each municipality's electorate rather than the size of its territory.
