20+ Electoral Maps Visualizing 2020 U.S. Presidential Election Results — DataViz Weekly Special EditionNovember 6th, 2020 by AnyChart Team
All eyes on election maps! Yes, they could be misleading. And even widely misleading. But it can be at least so fascinating to look at them, especially at times like this! So, we have curated a list of over twenty reputable resources — as of now, to be precise, 24 and counting! — where you can watch the live results of the 2020 United States Presidential election in compelling data visualizations. At the same time, it is a great chance for you to investigate and understand how election maps (and some other graphics) can look and work in practice.
Vote counts may be different on different platforms and update as more data becomes available out there — it’s absolutely okay. The election results are still partial. Over the coming days, all numbers will be adjusted to match the real, final vote count. Just in case: We’ve added only reliable sources — notable, reputable media outlets.
Without further ado, check out maybe the most important data visualizations these days! (Electoral vote count numbers in the text last updated on November 9th, 2020, for each source.)
Making your data visualization life ever easier is what we at AnyChart are boundlessly passionate about. This time we focused on further simplifying the integration of our JS charting solutions into your web development environment.
So, prepare to replan your schedule! From now on, you will spend tangibly less time on charting. And please greet the 21 New Technical Integration Templates that we have just released! They will help you deploy HTML5 graphs, maps, stock charts, dashboards, and Gantt diagrams in your stack as easily (and rapidly!) as never before, no matter what programming languages, frameworks, and databases are used.
You can find the templates right here on our website, in the Technical Integrations section.
The integration templates we’ve added cover the most popular languages, frameworks and libraries, and database programs. Below is the list of the newly available combinations.
Templates for easily integrating AnyChart JS charting libraries into your stack:
Ruby on Rails integration
We hope you agree that this is a tremendous addition to the JS charting integration samples published earlier:
- Clojure, ClojureScript and PostgreSQL,
- iOS, Objective-C and SQLite,
- NodeJS and MongoDB,
- PHP and MySQL,
- PHP, Slim and MySQL.
So, you are welcome to make use of our integration templates and samples for easier data visualization. All of them are released on GitHub under the Apache 2.0 License, rest in the AnyChart Integrations repository, and can be forked and changed in any way.
We are going to keep the collection growing further. Meanwhile, please send us your suggestions on what other particular integration you are interested to learn about first, and – as always! – that one will be prioritized; just contact our Support Team for that and name your stack.

Of course, data visualization is not the only but just one of multiple fields where the library of GraphicsJS can be helpful and even essential. Generally speaking, this solution can help you produce virtually anything graphical from scratch: static and animated images, cartoons, games, interactive infographics, mind maps, and many other amazing things in HTML5.
Key Features of JS Graphics Library
- Mighty line drawing abilities – Bézier curves, arcs, rectangles, and many other kinds of forms and deformations.
- Powerful text manipulation features – multiline texts, measurement, including width, height, as well as wrap, overflow, indent, spacing, align, etc.
- Virtual DOM for drawing fast and only what is necessary.
- Smart layering system with z-index.
- Transformation engine – embarrassing in-browser transformations are not used.
- Legacy browser support (Internet Explorer 6+).
By the way, making our graphics engine open-source is just the beginning as – we are also pleased to tell you – AnyChart is going to open the source code of our charting libraries soon! We believe that our great developments in the fields of graphics and data visualization should be even more visible and reachable to any programmer from any part of the world, not to mention that we would love to allow the community to contribute.
Please refer to GraphicsJS.org to learn more about GraphicsJS. As always, the demos are available on our Playground (Graphics section). Also, let’s not forget about the Graphics Documentation and Graphics API Reference.
What’s more, the GraphicsJS library and all relevant samples can be freely downloaded and forked on GitHub.
