Green Bastions – where Alexander Van der Bellen got the most votes
The map shows where Alexander Van der Bellen, independent candidate with strong support of the Green Party, received the most votes in the first round of the Austrian 2016 presidential elections, on the scale of municipalities. The choropleths indicate his shares of the vote.
The territories have been re-scaled according to the absolute numbers of votes that Van der Bellen received on 24 April 2016. Consequently, the map represents the number of supporters for Van der Bellen in each municipality rather than the size of its territory.
