Electoral map of the Southern Basque Country

I was missing one of these online, so I made one myself. 

The following map indicates the leading list in every Southern Basque municipality. Notice that even if often the leading list also has a local majority of councilors and maybe even a clear majority of votes, this is not necessarily the case. For details on each town, check the quite complete interactive list at Gara.

The two anomalous cases are an exact tie and a case where the null votes were 40%, many more than the leading list, what suggests some legal issue.

Independent lists, so dominant in much of Navarre, are surely a good idea for small towns but they provide little information to us visually. 

In any case, it is clear that the Unionist forces are extremely weak in Gipuzkoa, Biscay, much of Araba and NW Navarre. On the other side, Southern Navarre is pretty much in their hands.
