The Political Atlas of Switzerland contains the results for popular votes since 1919 and federal elections since 1866. It's a free web application, continually updated and available at all times. The atlas is being updated live and on a continuous basis as the results of federal votes and elections are released every election Sunday. Practical user instructions are available for ease of use.
The Political Atlas of Switzerland was honoured with the Swiss Cartography Award 2013.
