This election saw some interesting divisions on subjects based on locale, as Tom mentioned in the comments over here. This site has some neat drill-down you can do on all the Virginia contests, both by region and county. You can see the Webb-Allen race by region and what a huge skew the area containing Arlington and the area containing Newport News had for Webb, or how for some reason Greensville and Campbell county were the only two to get a majority of no votes on question 2 about the powers of the general assembly. Maybe I’m just a big numbers nerd, but I think looking at the distributions is neat even on issues I didn’t give a toss about.
