Canadian Election Maps: Before the Vote

The polls are starting to close in the Canadian federal election, and no doubt there will be a plethora of election maps in fairly short order. In the meantime, while we wait for the results, there are already a number of maps showing the electoral boundaries, candidates, poll results and so forth. And since approximately 43.7 per cent of all map bloggers are Canadian, none of them have been missed, I think.

The always excellent Cartography blog has done a whole series of posts on election maps: 1, 2, 3, 4. (I particularly like this big (3.4-MB) PDF from Elections Canada; it shows the 2004 results and is probably the gold standard for print-based electoral maps.) And Google Maps Mania points to a couple of Google Maps hacks (unfortunately, this one, a mashup with a very Web-2.0-ish poll site, crashes Safari, and this one, which aggregates polling data, is down for the evening).

There will no doubt be more over the next day or two.
