I’ve had a number of requests to take a look at the data from the recent Kentucky Governors’ election. I’ve had a few days to track down the data and create a few graphs for this election (and several hours cleaning up the data from my own mistakes). I haven’t done a full analysis of the Kentucky Governor’s Race, but I have accomplished a cum % republican votes for the largest counties in 3 of the 4 different voting system used in Kentucky.
Code 1 and Code 4 Equipment: show clear signs of the anomolous trend for % Republican votes increasing with the number of votes cast. (Blue and Yellow lines on graph)
Code 2 Equipment: shows a clear downward trend (benefiting Dem) but has few votes cast. I would not draw any conclusions about this equipment due to insufficient data. (Gray line on graph)
Code 3 Equipment: I haven’t investigated. It is used by only a few counties and has few total votes cast.
Here are the Codes I used for the Voting Equipment used by KY counties:
- Hart InterCivic eScan and Hart InterCivic eSlate
- ES&S Ivotronic and ES&S M-100 Scan
- Electronic 1242, Hart InterCivic eScan and Hart InterCivic eSlate
- Accu-Vote ES & Accu-Vote TSX (Only Jefferson County uses this system)
The following counties were used in this analysis.
