How Toronto Voted For Mayor

UPDATED

Which wards voted for which mayoral candidate. Map by Marc Lostracco/Torontoist.


The City of Toronto has released their full, official election results. Despite Rob Ford’s election night assertion that Toronto is united, not divided, the voting statistics suggest a different, and stark, picture: downtown wards overwhelmingly backed George Smitherman, and suburban wards overwhelmingly backed Rob Ford. [UPDATE, OCTOBER 28, 2:00 PM: A map showing how strong each ward's winning candidate's support was is below. 2:15 PM ...as is a version of the map above that's optimized for colourblind readers.]

UPDATES

OCTOBER 28, 2:00 PM: And by request, here’s a map showing how heavy the support was for the winning mayoral candidate in each ward. The lighter the shade of a ward, the closer the race was between Rob Ford and George Smitherman:
