    I did not only the towns and counties but also the congressional districts. I may or may not do Maine though since, while it's easy to get the town level data, DRA doesn't label towns the way CT, MA, and NH has so far at at 433 (IIRC) that would take a good while to color it manually. So far I've been using the awesome color by .csv function to alphabetize the counties/towns and it's saved a ton of time.

    Unfortunately I'm still trying to find data for Massachussets which puts hardly any data below the statewide level on it's SoS site and many of the town election sites are a joke. Some of the data sets I've gotten from others don't match the vote totals statewide from the SoS, so I'll probably have to just revisit that state at some point...

    I have yet to get to Rhode Island and Vermont, but I'm not anticipating any problems at this point.
