    9 charts for visualizing election data [+ examples]

    Here are the 9 chart types to use for visualizing election data, starting with the 2020 US presidential election.


    9 charts for visualizing election data [+ examples]

    27.10.2020 by Kristine Spure

    As the 2020 US presidential election draws closer, newsrooms around the world are getting ready to track election data and inform their readers around the globe.

    Election data can get pretty complicated, no matter the scale of the election that needs to be covered. At the same time, readers expect clear data visualizations from the media in order to fully understand the numbers.

    Good election visuals can take time to create, so we’ve put together a shortlist of charts you can quickly build with Infogram. Become the go-to source for your readers with high-quality maps, bar chart races, pictorial charts, progress bars, and other data visualization formats.

    To reduce the hassle of data input, you can create charts and maps that update in real time and watch your embeds update automatically online. You can also upload your logo and add company colors.

    Without further ado, here are the 9 chart types for visualizing election data, starting with the 2020 US presidential election.

    1. Maps – heatmap (choropleth) and grouped

    Interactive maps help visualize election data based on a geographical standpoint, which is especially important come election time. With Infogram, you can create free maps of the United States, and our premium plans let you build individual state and regional maps. Our maps feature clickable legends, hover-over tooltips for additional information, and interactive tabs that save space and engage your audience.

    Example: The results of the 2016 US Presidential election displayed in a heatmap and a grouped map.

    2. Bar chart races

    Bar chart races are similar to bar charts but are much more dynamic. They’re great for presenting your data in an engaging and straightforward way. You’ve probably seen this type of chart going viral on social media, and there’s really not much more to be said: Bar chart races really make a splash online. 

    Example: Here’s a bar chart race showcasing how the champions of the Premier League have performed throughout the years.

    3. Pictorial charts

    Pictorial charts use relative sizes or repetition of icons to represent data. Search our large library of icons to build the perfect election pictorial chart.

    Example: In this pictorial chart, we visualized and compared who controls the US House of Representatives in 2014 and in 2016.

    4. Bar charts

    Bar charts are insanely popular for a reason – they are easy to read and the human brain loves them! Bar charts are plotted horizontally and their lengths are proportional to the values they represent. With Infogram, you can make standard, grouped, stacked, and 100% stacked bar charts, plus bar chart races.

    Example: This bar chart created by PolitiFact shows the percentage of electoral votes won by every presidential winner since George Washington.

    5. Column charts

    Similarly to bar charts, column charts are also easy to understand and simple to create, which is why they are so popular. Plotted vertically with lengths proportional to the values, they mostly display discrete categories of data. There are several variations of column charts available on Infogram, including grouped, stacked, and 100% stacked column charts.

    Example: Here we visualized the data from the 2016 presidential election, comparing total votes and swing-state votes from 2012 and 2016.

    6. Stacked bar charts

    Stacked bar charts are a nice way to display multiple datasets on the same topic, making your visualization concise and organized.

    Example: Here we built a stacked bar chart showing the party breakdown in specific states after the 2016 presidential election.

    7. Pie charts (regular or semi-circle)

    Pie charts are widely used in the media and they’re quite popular because they’re easy to create and understand. The main use of a pie chart is to show comparisons between different categories. Pie charts are your best option if your election data represents parts of a whole and adds up to 100%.

    Example: A semi-circle and regular pie chart displaying the percentage of votes in the 2016 US presidential election.

    8. Progress bars

    Progress bars help monitor the overall progress towards a target or goal. Use them to update readers on election results in real-time, showing the number of votes counted compared to how many have yet to be calculated.

    Example: This progress bar chart shows the major parties in the Senate after the 2016 election. It’s easy to read and effective at a glance.

    9. Timers

    Create an interactive countdown timer that shows the end of an election and publish it on your article or embed it on your website. An interactive election timer will build anticipation, pique your viewer’s interest, and inform the readers when the polls open or close. You can also create a count-up timer that shows how long the representatives or leaders have been elected.

    Example: This countdown timer shows how much time is left until the 2020 United States presidential election.

    If you’re working in the media as a journalist, editor, or even if you’re covering social media outputs, it’s your job to grab people’s attention and keep it. People count on you to share the latest election results.

    Voter Turnout Database

    The Voter Turnout Database is the best resource for a wide array of statistics on voter turnout from around the world.

    The Voter Turnout Database is the best resource for a wide array of statistics on voter turnout from around the world. It contains the most comprehensive global collection of voter turnout statistics from presidential and parliamentary elections since 1945. Always growing, the database also includes European Parliament elections, as presented by country using both the number of registered voters and voting age population as indicators, and in some cases the data includes statistics on spoilt ballot rate. The easy-to-use database allows you to search for data by country or field, and even download all the data from the database in one file.



    The Voter Turnout data presented in this website is based on data gathered from desk research by International IDEA staff, surveys to Electoral Management Bodies and the International IDEA publications Voter Turnout in Western Europe since 1945 (2004) and Voter Turnout since 1945 (2002). Data in this database have been regularly updated since its launch and users are able to make contributions to help International IDEA keep the Voter Turnout database up to date.


    In this database we use the Voting Age Population (VAP), as well as the number of Registered Voters (REG) as indicators of political participation. The VAP figure includes an estimated number of all those citizens over the legal voting age, while the registration rate comprises the actual number of people on the voters’ roll.

    The users of the database will notice that in some instances the registration rate (REG) for a country actually exceeds the estimated number of eligible voters (VAP). The explanation for this apparent anomaly usually lies either in the inaccuracy of the electoral roll, or in the estimated number of eligible voters (VAP).

    In some countries, the roll is extremely difficult to keep up to date, and deaths or movements of electors from one district to another are not reflected in the roll, something which is a common problem facing electoral administrators around the world.

    It is important to emphasize that the registration figures are, in most cases, more recently updated than population figures. The VAP is based on the most recent population census figure available. Although not an exact figure, it is a reflection of the demographic trend and estimated population growth of a country.


    The criteria for including an election in the database are the following:

    That the election was held after 1945.

    That the election is for national political office in independent nation states, with the exception of those nations which held elections on the eve of their independence from colonial rule (such as Nigeria in 1959), those small island nations whose sovereignty is limited by "free association" with a larger power (such as Aruba) or elections to the EU parliament.

    That there was a degree of competitiveness (that is, more than one party contested the elections, or one party and independents contested the elections, or the election was only contested by independent candidates). This criterion excluded the one-party states of North Korea, China, and the Soviet Union, but led to the inclusion of elections, such as, Uganda 1995 (where parties were banned) and Egypt 1976 where a number of independent candidates ran against the ruling party. Within the grey area of competitiveness we have erred on the side of inclusion and, at least where the data is available, have included the turnout figures and explanatory variables in the tables for each country.

    That the franchise was universal. However, for the purposes of comparison we have included elections in Liechtenstein (pre-1986), Switzerland (pre-1971), Greece (pre-1956), Belgium (1948), Kuwait (1992-1996), Bahrain (1973) and Argentina (1947) which excluded women from voting. In these cases, the voting age population figure only includes men. We have not included elections where the franchise was limited to a very small (and ethnically defined) segment of the population, e.g., South Africa (before 1994), Western Samoa (before 1991).

    The Voter Turnout database has been expanded of the data from the European Parliament elections that have been of an increasing importance in Europe. The EP elections are not only a hotly debated problem in European media but also quite a challenging issue for their general low voter turnout. We are entirely aware of the fact that the EP elections differ from the concept of the particular country elections that we have solely focused on so far but we believe this data is of a high relevance to our database.

    Updating the database

    Since the launch of the voter turnout database, the Electoral Processes Programme at International IDEA has ensured that the data have been regularly updated. The primary sources for the data on voter registration, total vote and corresponding voter turnout are the national electoral management bodies (EMBs) and national statistical bureaus of countries listed in the database. Data from the EMBs are obtained from either their official reports or information provided in their official web portals. In few cases, when data are not available from the EMBs, the information on voter turnout is obtained from secondary sources as listed above. Population and VAP statistics are always obtained from secondary sources.
