Overturned results – How Austria voted in the overturned 2016 presidential run-off (22 May)
The map shows the final results of the (later) overturned Austrian 2016 presidential run-off at the scale of municipalities (as published 1 June 2016). Alexander van der Bellen, the candidate backed by the Green Party, received 50.35% and won by a narrow margin of 30.863 votes ahead of Norbert Hofer of the Freedom Party (blue).
The territories have been re-sized to represent the 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.
