Mississippi Get-Out-The-Vote Maps

FairVote2020 has developed an interactive map showing turnout in Mississippi during the 1999 gubernatorial contest and margin of victory maps for the 1999 governor's contest and the 2000 presidential election.

Additional maps include census data on race, ethnicity and income. Change maps by clicking on the map under "Compare Maps" on the left. You may zoom in on the map by clicking on the appropriate button at the top and then on the map.

Note: Turnout is calculated using population over 18 We will update to show the 2003 gubernatorial results if we can obtain precinct data.
