A quick comparison of 2012 presidential election vs. 2011 parliamentary election (see https://bbzippo.wordpress.com/tag/russian-elections/). I’m just trying out some new (to me) graphing techniques.
Precinct size vs. Turnout
2011 (parliamentary) on the left, 2012 (presidential) on the right. We can see the same 3 distinct categories: ethnic outskirts, smaller precincts (suburbs) and larger precincts (cities). Obviously, more people turn out to vote for president than for parliament seats, especially in cities. (The line is the median smoothing).
