Mapping Early American Elections Releases Essays, Maps, Tutorials, Data

The Mapping Early American Elections project has made their final release data, maps, and essays covering the history of elections to the U.S. House of Representatives during the First Party System. The site now includes six essays that introduce the website and the history of the politics during the early American republic. We have also released our data and tutorials on how to use it. You can start at the site by reading the introductory essay which provides an overview of the site, or read today’s blog post from the project explaining the latest release.
