Tomorrow is Election Day here in Canada. The rest of the world might not notice but to us Canadians, the event holds much interest. If the polls are any indication, it looks like there will be a change in government, if only from one minority government to another.

The Globe and Mail website has an extensive election tracking site that includes an interactive map. Simple colour-coding of a regular map to indicate the success of the various parties presents its own difficulties since the 308 consitituencies, ridings or seats that are up for grabs vary greatly in geographic size. To provide a more accurate picture of party success the Globe has also provided what it calls a Riding Grid. Each seat is represented by a small rectangle, broken down by province and territory.

Results will start becoming available after 10 PM EST.
