Berlin Live Election Map

Election counting visualised in realtime

During the election night for the new Bundestag, the Federal Election Commissioner published minute-by-minute new election results from the polling stations. The distribution of the seats in the Bundestag and the further whereabouts of Tegel Airport were decided that night. The guiding principle of the application was to inform the population in real time about the most important current election facts. The current count of the number of electoral constituencies in Berlin and a list of elected politicians from the twelve electoral districts of Berlin are displayed. As part of the Google News Lab Fellowship program, this visualisation was developed by Julius Tröger in the Interactive Team of the Berliner Morgenpost.

We received the data from the Federal Election Commissioner in the form of Excel spreadsheets attached to e-mails. As soon as a new mail is

received, it is automatically checked, prepared for the application and made available online. It regularly checks and visualises the latest data.
