. ELECTION RESULTS
... .
Each year's Election Results pages are generally divided into three to six sections.
OVERVIEW
Lists the candidates, their party, the state represented, and their popular and electoral vote totals; only candidates who receive at least one electoral vote or at least 1% of the popular vote are listed here.
ELECTORAL MAP
An across the country graphical overview of each candidates' electoral votes. If your browser supports JavaScript and it is enabled, as your cursor moves over the map, electoral vote info will be displayed in your browser's status bar.
HOUSE MAP
A graphical overview of each candidates' votes in the House of Representatives. Only appears in elections that were thrown to the House due to a tie or no candidate receiving an electoral vote majority .
BACKGROUND
The issues and background behind the vote and the outcome of the election itself. Also includes articles and other websites related to the candidates or the election.
STATE RESULTS
The popular and electoral vote and electors names by state when available. Please be aware that the popular vote totals given may not be exact; different sources almost always list different totals but the percentages are basically the same. Theodore H. White in his Pulitzer Prize winning book The Making of the President 1960 puts it this way: "The 'official' tabulation of Presidential votes in the United States is always something of a mystery...Since the individual states, rather than the Federal government, collect the votes and report them, the first national tabulations are always made by unofficial reporting groups. These unofficial 'official' totals normally agree down to the tiniest percentages - but in the last few digits of the grand totals they diverge...Until the federal government sets up an official vote-counting agency these discrepancies will continiue to baffle and annoy scholars and citizens alike."
OTHER CANDIDATES
The "third" party candidates and independents; those who receive less than 1 percent of the vote
