   Republican >= 30%
   Republican >= 40%
   Republican >= 50%
   Republican >= 60%
   Republican >= 70%
   Republican >= 80%

Map requestEdit

Hey, could you do a map of the 1996 Kansas special senate election? Thanks! MB298 (talk) 07:16, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

- Looks like someone beat me to it, but I updated the shapes anyway.

Independent Republicans in MN HouseEdit

Since they're still Republicans, could we try a lighter shade of red instead of orange? Orange in MN has always been associated with Jesse Ventura and the Independence Party, so I feel at least keeping it red might help. Just my opinion, though. Let me know what you think. Pharexia (talk) 04:53, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

I thought the same thing, but I'm unsure as well. Let's wait to see what they name their caucus (if they choose to), but, for now, the color just distinguishes them from Reps and Dems well enough. There's a good chance they'll call themselves the "Independent Republicans," in which case light red would probably be a better shade for them. SpeedMcCool (talk) 6:05, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

2018 Tennessee Senate mapEdit

 

Hi SpeedMcCool, I would like to thank you for updating the Tennessee Senate map for 2018! It is of much better quality than the one it replaced. I noticed that Montgomery County, in middle part of the state, is shaded for a win by the Republican Marsha Blackburn of 50-60%, but according to Dave Liep's Atlas of U.S. Presidential Elections, Blackburn won the county with only 49.98% of the vote. Also, Wayne County is shaded for a Republican win of 80-90%, but was actually carried by Blackburn with 79.97% of the vote. If you could make these fixes, it would be much appreciated. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 21:10, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the notice! Results must've been updated! SpeedMcCool (talk) 11:33, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

CategoriesEdit

Please use the most detailed categories possible for your election maps - see here for an example of one of your maps that I've recategorized. Thanks! Pi.1415926535 (talk) 05:08, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

2018 Texas governor mapEdit

 

Thanks for changing the Tennessee Senate map! Would you be willing to make a correction on another map? If so, it would be much appreciated. This map made for the 2018 Texas governor's race shows a win in Brewster County, located in West Texas, by the Republican Greg Abbott of 40-50%, but Abbott actually won the county with 50.05% of the vote. If you could make this fix, I would be very grateful. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 02:10, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

- Fixed! SpeedMcCool (talk) 5:20, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

2018 Texas Senate mapEdit

 

Thanks for correcting the Texas gubernatorial map! Would you be able to correct an error on the map for the 2018 Texas Senate map? Waller County, located around Houston, is not completely filled in, with the northeast part of the county being gray while the rest is correctly shaded for a Cruz win of 60-70%. I would be really appreciate it if you could make this fix! Count Awesome (talk) 19:04, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

- Fixed! SpeedMcCool (talk) 0:31, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

2006 Texas governor mapEdit

 

Hi SpeedMcCool! Thanks again for fixing that map. I found an error on the Texas gubernatorial map for 2006, which coincidentally involves Waller County. The county is shaded for a win by independent candidate Carole Keeton Strayhorn of 20-30%, but according to Dave Liep's Atlas of U.S. Presidential Elections, Republican Rick Perry won the county with 29.50% of the vote, with Strayhorn placing second at 29.41%. I am unsure about how to resolve this error and am unsure if there is even a color to show a win by a Republican gubernatorial candidate of 20-30%. If there is some way you could make this correction, I would be quite thankful. Count Awesome (talk) 22:58, 14 December 2018 (UTC)

I fixed the colors, and created a color for 20-30% Republican. Idk if there's a place where wikimedia collects political map conventions, but it would be best to record the color there.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by SpeedMcCool (talk • contribs) 23:33, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

Thank you! I was unsure about this map because I have never seen any where a candidate has won a country with under 30% of the vote. This one isnstance was due to there being a race between four candidates who each pull a large percentage of the vote. I would say a future case such as this would be exceptionally rare, but now you have set a precedent for what color to use. Your help is much appreciated! Count Awesome (talk) 16:45, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

2018 Maryland governor mapEdit

 

Could you make some corrections to the map for the Maryland governor's race from this year? It was made two days after the election when a sizable amount of the vote was yet to be counted. Charles County, in southern Maryland, is shaded for a Republican win of 50-60%, but Democrat Ben Jealous actually won a plurality of the vote with 49.88%. Somerset County, located on the Eastern Shore, is shaded for a Republican win of 70-80%, but the Republican Larry Hogan only carried the county with 67.55%. Lastly, Queen Anne's County is also shaded for a Republican win of 70-80%, but Hogan won the county with 84.90% of the vote. If you could make these fixes, it would be much appreciated!

Count Awesome (talk) 17:36, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

I made those fixes for you! SpeedMcCool (talk) 16:45, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

2010 Colorado governor mapEdit

 

Hi SpeedMcCool! Thanks for making the fixes on the Maryland map. I noticed this map was done in the color scheme used in presidential races, which would be out of place in this instance as it is a gubernatorial race. Could you change the colors for the Democrats and Republicans on this map so that it would fit better as a gubernatorial map? I would really appreciate it!

Count Awesome (talk) 06:59, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

2018 Alabama governor mapEdit

 

Thank you for editing the map of Colorado! Could you make a fix on the map of the governor's race in Alabama for this year? Tuscaloosa County is shaded for a win by the Republican of 50-60%, but the Democrat Walt Maddox actually carried the county with 49.91% of the vote. Thanks for the help! Count Awesome (talk) 18:05, 20 December 2018 (UTC)

2018 California governor mapEdit

 

Thanks for fixing the Alabama map! Could you make a fix on this map of California? Kings County is shaded for a Republican win of 60-70%, but the Republican John Cox actually won the county with 59.42% of the vote. If you could make this fix, it would be much appreciated! Count Awesome (talk) 05:23, 27 December 2018 (UTC)

1990 Tennessee governor mapEdit

   

Hi SpeedMcCool! Thanks for correcting the California gubernatorial map. On this map for the 1990 Tennessee governor's race, Loudon County, in the eastern part of the state, has not been shaded. However, Dave Leip's Atlas of U.S. Presidential Elections has the county shaded purple, indicating a tie between the Republican and Democratic candidates. Would you be able to use the purple color used in this years Minnesota gubernatorial contest and apply this to Loudon County? It would be much appreciated! Count Awesome (talk) 19:27, 28 December 2018 (UTC)

2018 Florida Senate mapEdit

 

Thank you for correcting the Tennessee map! Would you be able to correct the shading of Hendry County for the 2018 Senate race in Florida. It is shaded for a Republican win of 60-70%, but the Republican nominee Rick Scott only carried the county with 59.96% of the vote. If you could make this fix, I would really appreciate it. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 14:08, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

Superseded imagesEdit

In case you didn't notice the ping: See Commons:Superseded images policy. Please stop mass nominating these images. Just tag them with {{Superseded}} and let them be. Multichill (talk) 13:25, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

2018 Nevada Senate mapEdit

 

Thank you for correcting the Florida Senate map. Would you also be able to correct the map for the 2018 Senate race in Nevada? Eureka County is shaded for a Republican win of 70-80%, but the Republican Dean Heller actually carried the county with 83.51% of the vote. If you could make this fix, it would be appreciated! Count Awesome (talk) 00:32, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

2018 New Jersey Senate mapEdit

 

Thanks for making the correction on the Nevada Senate map! I noticed that someone recently made a change on the 2018 Senate map for New Jersey you made, changing the color of Cumberland County from the shade of a Republican win to a Democratic win. However, while the Democrat Robert Menendez did win a plurality of the vote at 48.27%, the shading of the county is a much lighter blue than what is typical for a Senate map. Would you be able to change the shading to what is standard for Senate maps? Thanks you! Count Awesome (talk) 23:18, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!Edit

  The Original Barnstar
I'm really impressed by your dedication to creating county maps to articles of older U.S. elections and making precinct maps of Minnesota elections as well. Keep up the great work! Mr.Election (talk) 04:12, 10 January 2019 (UTC)

2010 Florida governor mapEdit

 

Thanks for fixing the New Jersey Senate map! I found an shading error on the map for the 2010 Florida governor's, and I am hoping you could make a correction. Clay County, in the northeast of the state is shaded for a Republican win of 70-80%, but the Republican Rick Scott only won the county with 69.97% of the vote. If you could make this fix, it would be much appreciated. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 00:06, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

2018 New York Senate mapEdit

 

Thank you for correcting the Florida Governor's map! I found an error on the map for the 2018 Senate election in New York, which I am hoping you will be able to fix. The Bronx is shaded for a Democratic win of 80-90%, but the Democrat Senator Kirsten Gillibrand actually carried the county with 91.74% of the vote. If you could make this fix, it would be much appreciated. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 20:22, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

2014 Tennessee governor mapEdit

 

Thank you for fixing the New York Senate map! Would you be able make a correction on another map? Claiborne County, in East Tennessee, is shaded for a Republican win of 60-70% but the Republican Bill Haslam won the county with 76.20% of the vote. If you could make this correction, it would really be appreciated. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 04:26, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

2006 Arizona and Wyoming governor mapsEdit

   

Thank you for correcting the Tennessee map! I noticed that there are errors in the making of the 2006 gubernatorial maps for Arizona and Wyoming. While the colors correctly reflect the percentages by which the counties voted, both maps are done in the color for presidential maps. The lines on these maps are also much thinner than they would be on the standard gubernatorial maps for these states. If you could make these changes, it would really be appreciated. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 15:32, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Sorry it took me a while to accomplish this one! Been a little busy!

If you keep sending these, I will keep fixing them. Even though I don't respond, I like the work! SpeedMcCool (talk) 0:27, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

2015 Kentucky governor mapEdit

 

Thank you for correcting the Arizona and Wyoming maps! I really appreciate your response, and it makes me feel better about making these requests. I truly do not want to impose upon you. Would you be able to correct the color scheme on this map for the 2015 Kentucky governor's race? It is shaded like a presidential map, which is not fitting for what it really is. If you could make this fix, it would be much appreciated. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 05:44, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

2004 Washington governor mapEdit

   

Thanks for correcting the Kentucky gubernatorial map! Would you be able to change the color scheme for the 2004 Washington gubernatorial map to the non-presidential color scheme? Also, could you change the alignment of the 2004 map to be like the 2016 map to create a more uniform look? If you could make these fixes, it would really be appreciated. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 03:18, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

List of international presidential trips made by Donald Trump mapEdit

 

Thank you for correcting the Washington gubernatorial map! I have a request that is different from my previous ones, and I am hoping you can help me. This map of Donald Trump's international trips has not been updated in several months, and in order to be up to date, it should show one visit to Argentina and Iraq as well as two visits to France and Germany. If you would be able to make these additions, it would be much appreciated. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 05:31, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

Domestic trips made by Donald Trump in 2018 mapEdit

 

Thank you for updating the foreign trips map of President Trump! Would you be willing to finish the map for the domestic trips made by Donald Trump in 2018? Can you add one visit to Arizona; two visits to California, Illinois, Mississippi, and Wisconsin; three visits to Georgia, Nevada, and Texas; four visits to Montana, North Carolina, and Tennessee; five visits to Indiana; six visits to Missouri and West Virginia; and seven or more visits to Ohio and Pennsylvania? I know this is a big request, and I would really appreciate it if you could make these changes. Thank you! Count Awesome (talk) 00:13, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Domestic trips made by Donald Trump in 2019 Map RequestEdit

 

Thank you for fixing the Domestic trips made by Donald Trump in 2018 map! Would you be able to create another map like this one for the Domestic trips made by Donald Trump in 2019? If so, could you shade Louisiana, Texas, and Virginia for one visit? I believe the contributor who had been making the presidential trip maps has discontinued their activities on Wikipedia so it would really be appreciated if you could make this map. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 01:40, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

 

Here you go!

Presidential trips made by Donald Trump in 2019 city location mapEdit

 

Thank you for making the domestic trip map for 2019! I have a request for map of the Locations in the contiguous United States that President Donald Trump has visited in 2019. I was hoping you could recreate this map as similar to last year and the year before, where there is a map of the contiguous United States with the locations visited by President Trump being marked with a colored dot which represents the month of the visit. If you could do this, would you place dots on the locations of McAllen, Texas, New Orleans, Louisiana, and Arlington, Virginia? If you could make this map, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Count Awesome (talk) 20:20, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

I will definitely get that done, but could you share a map from a previous year to show me the style?

SpeedMcCool (talk) 21:01, 20 January 2019 (UTC)


The map is located at the top of this Wikipedia page: List of presidential trips made by Donald Trump (2018). I was unable to copy the map to your talk page. The way the file was made is unlike anything I have ever seen. If you could make this made, I would be really appreciative, but I absolutely understand if you cannot. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 17:52, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

The changes had to be made through a template page found [[1]].

2017 Virginia lieutenant governor and attorney general mapsEdit

  File:Virginia Attorney General election 2017.svg

Thank you so much for creating the city map template for the Domestic trips made by Donald Trump page! Would you be able to change the color scheme on the 2017 maps for Virginia Lt. Governor and Attorney General? They are non-presidential races in the presidential color scheme. If you could make these fixes, it would be really appreciated. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 03:48, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

2016 North Carolina lieutenant governor mapEdit

 

Thank you for correcting the maps for Virginia Lt. Governor and Attorney General. I have found that the 2016 map for North Carolina Lt. Governor has been colored in presidential colors, and I am hoping you could correct the color scheme. If you could make this fix, it would really be appreciated. Count Awesome (talk) 03:13, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

 

Thank you for changing the color scheme for this map. Would you also be able to change the shape to match the 2016 governor's race? It would create a look of more consistency. I really appreciate work you are doing. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 14:00, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

North Carolina mapsEdit

   

Thanks for editing the map for the North Carolina Lt. Governor’s race! I noticed that you edited the shape of the map, and it altered the shapes of some of counties on the eastern coast of the state. A large portion of these counties’ total area is water, with the counties boundaries extending out beyond the coast line. Would you consider restoring the coastline to the way it previously was, like featured in the presidential map? It helps to maintain geographic continuity, which I believe is important for the state with its distinctive coastline and Outer Banks islands. Thank you for the help! Count Awesome (talk) 05:04, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

I will, and I'm looking for a .shp of the NC Counties that includes coastlines. When I find one, I'll fix them. - SpeedMcCool

2018 Virginia Senate raceEdit

 

Thank you for updating the 2019 map of President Trump’s domestic trips. Would you be able to correct a few errors in the Virginia Senate race from last year? The independent cities of Norton and Bristol are shaded for Republican wins of 70-80%, but the Republican Corey Stewart carried them with 61.3% and 65.1% respectively. The independent cities of Lynchburg, Lexington, and Hopewell were shaded for Republican wins of 60-70%, but the Democrat Tom Kaine carried all three cities, winning Lynchburg at 50.7%, Lexington at 71.4%, and Hopewell at 56.4%. The maker of the map has also placed an independent city within Bedford County, located in the Lynchburg area, but the independent city actually merged with the county in 2013. If you could make these fixes, it would be much appreciated! Count Awesome (talk) 20:33, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

 

Thank you for your work on the Virginia maps! I really believe you have improved the quality. Would you be able to adjust the boundaries for the map of the Republican primary to be like the map of the general election? It would help to maintain continuity. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 05:14, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

2020 House elections mapEdit

 

Thank you for correcting the Virginia Senate map! Would you be able to make a few changes to the 2020 house elections map? North Carolina’s 3rd congressional district has become vacant after the death of incumbent Walter Jones, and Pennsylvania’s 12th congressional district was vacated by its incumbent Tom Marino. Also, the Republican incumbent for Alabama’s 1st congressional district Bradley Byrne is retiring to run for the U.S. Senate in 2020. Another error on the map is that there is an extra piece of land shaded in northwestern Pennsylvania, which does not belong there. If you could make these fixes, it would be much appreciated! Count Awesome (talk) 21:39, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

Oregon designated successorEdit

 

Thank you for updated the format of the Virginia Republican Senate primary! Would you be able to update map for the party affiliation of current designated successors to the current United States governors? Oregon does not have the position of Lt. Governor, meaning if the office of Governor becomes vacant, the Secretary of State assumes office. However, the office of Secretary of State, which was held by a Republican, is vacant, so the State Treasurer, a Democrat, has become next in the line of succession and will remain so until another Secretary of State can be elected in 2020. Can you change the shading of Oregon from red to blue? If so, it would be much appreciated.

Count Awesome (talk) 16:12, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

Trump Vietnam visitEdit

 

Thank you for correcting the color of Oregon on the map of designated successors of the current governors! If you don’t mind, I have another request for you.

Hi SpeedMcCool! Thanks for updating the map of international presidential visits made by Donald Trump!

Domestic trips made by Donald Trump in 2017Edit

 

Hi SpeedMcCool! Thank you for updating the map of international trips made by Donald Trump. I was reviewing the map of domestic trips from 2017, and I noticed that Texas was incorrectly shaded. The map indicates Trump made two visits to the state when he actually made three visits. If you could correct the shading of Texas on this map, it would really be appreciated. Count Awesome (talk) 01:16, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

International trips made by Donald Trump updateEdit

 

Hi SpeedMcCool! Thanks for updating the map of domestic trips taken by Donald Trump in 2017! I was wondering if you could do the same for the map of his international trips. The map indicates that Trump has made one visit to Taiwan, and although China claims the island as a part of its territory, it is a de facto independent state. Could you remove the shading on Taiwan? If you could correct the map, it would really be appreciated. Count Awesome (talk) 20:38, 30 June 2019 (UTC)
