40 Years of Abstention is an interactive visualization of the abstention in the Portuguese legislative elections, between 1975 and 2015.
After gathering and processing a comprehensive dataset with all the results of the legislative elections in Portugal we wanted to find a visual way to show the evolution of abstention since the 75 revolution. The vertical axis divides two ways to look at the results: on the left, the votes for each party as regularly presented; on the right, the votes in each party recalculated to include the abstention percentage.
