This is a fun map

If you've got some time to kill, I direct you to's election map thingy. It's really nifty.

For instance, here you see the presidential election by town in the area around Fitchburg. Mousing over brings up the percentages. So you can see Fitchburg was pretty much on par with the rest of the state, while some of the little dumb towns in the area actually went for McCain (usually not by a whole lot, mind you).

You can also get numbers for pretty much every race and ballot question you could possibly want. The question 2 map is pretty cool too. Apparently only three towns voted no on it. I wonder why.

[Update:] Hey, the New York Times has a pretty good map too. Not quite as locally-oriented, of course. Still nifty.
