Maps showing details of how Spain voted bring a deeper understanding of the election results.


This map allows you to check how each municipality across Spain voted. The map shows reveals that Vox have gained in the Madrid region, Murcia and pockest across the scarsely populated interior as well as in towns in rural Andalusia.

The Spanish socialist party won the share of the vote in 3,460 municipalities across Spain. The PP won 2,860 while Vox won 278.

In Catalonia, the ERC won 584 Catalan municipalities more than double that of JxCat (the party of the exiled Carles Puigdemont). The more radical CUP, won 50 municipalities.

In the Basque Country the vote was split between two Basque parties, EH Blidu, which won 183 municipalities and the PNV which won 153.

In neighbouring Navarra, Navarra Suma won 106 municpalities and in Teruel, the newly formed ¡Teruel Existe! took the biggest share winning 39 municipalities.

The following maps shows the dramatic change in how Spain voted on November 10th compared to the last election in April and the previous one in June 2016 revealing how Spain has lurched from blue to red and then became more fractured and with the growth of regional parties and of Vox.

The map on the bottom left from 2016 shows that the PP won the most votes in most of the provinces apart from the Basque and Catalan regions and some of Andalusia. Whereas on the right from April shows the red of the PSOE is the dominant colour.  While the one below shows Sunday's vote and how the PP are regaining ground plus the emergence of Vox as the largest party in Murcia.
