Another interesting visual from our friends at VPAP.org:
“Voter participation was up nearly everywhere this year. But what does that look like on a map where each of Virginia’s 133 localities is sized according to the number of registered voters? ( Look closely, as localities have shifted westward to make room for densely populated Northern Virginia.)”
Click the link above to see the map at VPAP and to enlarge it.
“Map Methodology: Each city and county is sized according to the number of registered voters in October 2021.
How Turnout Change Was Calculated: (Percentage of voters in each locality who cast ballots in the 2021 general election) MINUS (Percentage of voters who cast ballots in the 2017 general election)
