Ara.cat offers a wide deployment in election periods to keep the count in real time and analyze the data. The special interactive dedicated to the Congress elections on June, 26, includes maps with territorial census data from tract level. It also includes a ‘Pactòmetre’ (‘pactmeter’), given the difficulties in forming a government due to the fragmentation of the vote. One of the most visited section is the survey that allows you to track the daily polls published by the media.

We have a database with all data from scrutiny of elections separated by municipalities, counties, districts, regions and generals. All these data were collected in real time during the election night at each election day. The data was updated every 3 minutes and received in CSV format. During the election night the website updated in real time and displayed modules and different data as the scrutiny advanced.
