The following map allows you to explore what has been voted for in each municipality in all municipal elections held in Spain since 1979. The first time around 2,000 different candidacies were presented, less than half the almost 5,000 in 2019 between parties, coalitions and local electoral groups . There have never been as many municipal candidacies as those registered for this Sunday, May 28: some 5,400 different ones linked to more than 2,400 national parties will be presented.
On the map, which you can explore for each year, we color each municipality with the winner at the polls, regardless of the party that governed after pacts or post-electoral alliances. The parties that have had sporadic or punctual representation or that have only appeared in certain municipalities appear in grey.
Why are there blank municipalities? There is a small percentage of municipalities that appear without data. It happens, for example, in some towns in Asturias in the 1983 elections: it is a failure of the original files, which do not include the information for that year.
Nor is information displayed on the few municipalities, such as Cerdedo-Cotobade in Galicia, which did not exist until a few years ago, because they have been separated from a larger one or have been created from the merger of two smaller ones.
What affects the most is what happens closer. To not miss anything, subscribe.
There are also a few dozen towns, such as Endériz or Eslava in Navarra, where no candidates were presented for the elections and the provincial council had to designate a management commission. In the elections this Sunday it happens in at least 43 towns.
Where does the data come from? The source of all is the infoelectoral website, where the Ministry of the Interior publishes detailed data on all electoral processes, from local to general. EL PAÍS has cleaned, organized and analyzed the data to offer it on this exclusive map.
