Parochial Wellington posting
Posted November 13, 2008on:
TVHE is a bunch of current and former Wellingtonians so, via The Wellingtonista, here is a map of how we voted down here.
Tom at The Wellingtonista has done an amazing job with the data so click the map to see a detailed breakdown by polling booth. Interestingly, the CBD is a haze of red, whilst the other ‘town’ area of Lower Hutt looks like a National voting zone. State housing areas around Naenae and Cannon’d Creek are vehemently for Labour, but the yuppie zones of Whitby and Oriental Bay vote National. National also got the farmers’ vote from Ohariu Valley, Whiteman’s Valley and Pauatahanui.
I guess the only thing that surprises me is how solidly the CBD is for Labour. I guess we are a bunch of lefty liberal types after all… sorry Goonix!
