Maps: How Philadelphia voted from the mayor’s race to the LGBT office


Philadelphia’s neighborhoods are vast and diverse. And that also means they vote quite differently.

So we mapped out how this city’s neighborhoods casted votes in this election cycle for several different races, including the mayoral race and the state Supreme Court race. Here’s what we have as of 11:45 p.m. Tuesday:

This is what support looked like across the city for Supreme Court candidate Kevin Dougherty, who clinched a statewide win for a spot on the court. Dougherty is the brother of John Dougherty, the union boss and head of huge union IBEW Local 98, which has poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into his campaign.

Jim Kenney has already delivered his victory speech, but votes from across the city are still pouring in. Not long after polls closed at 8 p.m., the race was called for Kenney as he’d defeated Republican Melissa Murray Bailey in a landslide.

Here’s a map of Kenney’s support across the city with 99 percent of precincts reporting:
