Contest Recap, 2012 Election Results

November 13, 2012

America's Electoral Map Contest:  There were 34,342 valid entries to the contest,  15,856 entrants (one entry per day was allowed) and 5,534 unique map configurations uploaded.   The most commonly submitted map was the correct map, and was submitted 2,307 times.    The first three of these perfect entries came within an hour of the start of the contest.   In the end, this election didn't deliver any major surprises, so we expected to have quite a few perfect guesses.    In addition to the first perfect map winner, we'll be randomly selecting 3 entries this week from the remaining group of perfect entries, as per the official rules.     If any of these selections are deemed not eligible to receive a prize, a substitute winner will be selected and notified.   For those that don't win, please see the official rules for how to request a list of winners.

 

 

 

2012 Results:    We'll be updating the site over the next couple months to reflect the final 2012 presidential election results.  These are not technically official until the Electors vote and the states submit their popular vote totals in December.  We'll also begin to set the map and site up for those of you that want to begin to look ahead to 2016.
