After two years of on-and-off engagement in this personal project, I hereby present to you two maps of how the Philippines voted for President and Vice President during the 2010 national elections – at the municipal and city level, or town-by-town.
Yours truly created these maps on the notion that this – showing which candidate for President and Vice President won in every town and city in the country – has never been done before.
The 2010 Philippine presidential elections page in Wikipedia, has lots of maps already about the May 10, 2010 elections. (Those on the percentage of votes obtained by candidates per province are a personal favorite.) But the results were only at the provincial level.
By going down to the municipal/city level, we can see how the presidential and vice presidential candidates truly fared in 2010. For example, Manny Villar, who was widely known to have won only in Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur, also received victories in many other towns in Northern Luzon.
Gilbert Teodoro (who in previous maps were shown to have garnered electoral victories only in small provinces like Guimaras, Camiguin and Dinagat Islands) also scored wins in western Pampanga, Agusan del Sur, and Lanao del Norte.
Vice presidential candidate Loren Legarda, who did not win in any province, actually had a good-to-strong showing in Palawan, Northern Luzon, Aurora, Lanao del Norte and the ARMM.
