Today's map in our primary mapping series is a partial map, that of the 10th Congressional District that is inside Travis County. This race featured Tawana Cadien and William “Bill” Miller, Jr.
The color scale divides the % share of the vote into six categories from dark orange to dark purple for the winning and losing candidates respectively, leaving three color densities for each candidate based on the share of the vote they received in the precinct. The breaks denote every 1/6th of the vote or 17%, 33%, 50%, 67%, and 83% to reflect not only the winner of a precinct but also the margin so as to highlight voting patterns across the county more easily. Precincts in red indicate no votes cast- most of these are fragmented precincts from congressional redistricting.
Takeaways: Tawana Cadien won the entirety of the 10th District by a 57-43 margin and her win in Travis County helped propel her to the nomination. The 10th District, which still stretches from Austin to Houston, crossed the northern parts of Travis County. Miller won 3 precincts in Travis County for a net gain of 7 votes, with 1 tied county, and the rest lost to Cadien. Cadien's strongest support was in the mostly Anglo liberal north-central neighborhoods of Austin as well as northeastern precincts, though she successfully won across a broad spectrum of precincts. She now faces incumbent GOP Congressman McCaul.
