Delegate Vote Map for Presidential Nomination at the Republican National Convention
I had been thinking of putting together an Info-box that detailed the vote by state at the Roll-Call for the Presidential Nomination, but quickly realized it would prove too unwieldy to put together without overly stretching the page once it was opened. Therefore, I decided to run something of a test, and put together the map you see below. The only real issue I had was the votes for Huntsman, Bachmann, and Roemer, given they had not been given their own color codes, so I simply threw in some. Tell me what you lot think, and how it would be best to implement it into the article(s) should it be decided to do so. --Ariostos (talk) 14:52, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
I think it is fantastic! Excellent work—it provides encyclopedic insights. Very appropriate for Wikipedia. It should go at the very end of the article, just after the current ending two map presentations, and before the "See also" section. It could be labeled "Final voting at convention roll call". Of course, there would be a legend (for candidates by color) and I would like to see the font smaller for the numbers in circles, and smaller circles. It will be a tremendous addition to a legendary article. To me, it makes a summation of the entire article. The legend could be to the right of SC, GA, and Florida.

Ariostos, a legend would help. Do you favor the larger circles and font for the numbers as they are now? Or could they be smaller? Charles Edwin Shipp (talk) 02:04, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
I'll tweak it and update it tomorrow. Looking at doing similar maps for other elections as well. --Ariostos (talk) 04:55, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
I have made request for a new assessment for this articles status. It might not be ready for featured article status yet, but hopefully we will get to know what to do to bring it there in the process. I really think we owe it to us self and this article to keep going all the way, to bring the article into history and not just leave it when the news interest have gone. Personally I think we have done a really good job, but what need to be done as the finishing touch? Go to the assessment discussion and take part:
