How Austria has voted in the 2017 General Election #nrw17 (preliminary results, 15 Oct)
The map shows the preliminary results of the 2017 Austrian general elections at the scale of municipalities – postal votes are not yet included. The colours indicate the respective winning party (see legend).The overall winning Austrian People’s Party/ÖVP (31.4%/turquoise) was particular successful in smaller and rural municipalities, while the second-placed Freedom Party/FPÖ (27.4%/blue) achieved a relative majority in some of their traditional strongholds (e.g. in Carinthia and Styria). The next-placed Social Democrats/SPÖ (26.7%/red) attracted more voters in larger cities.
The map represents the actual size of each municipality's electorate rather than the size of its territory. Therefore, the territories have been re-sized according to the spatial distribution of 6,401,304 eligible voters across Austria. There will be an updated map after the 889,193 postal votes have been counted (expected 20 Oct 2017).
