The results of the state assembly elections for the states of Assam, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, and West Bengal were released earlier today.
The best place to look for the results is to visit the site of the election commission of India’s (ECI) website itself at eciresults.nic.in
However I could not find the raw data I was looking for. Raw data will allow me to do see things that main stream media simply doesn’t bother too much with.
I scrubbed the data out from the ECI site itself and it turns out that the ECI has a page that shows data constituency wise. Check out a sample constituency here. http://eciresults.nic.in/ConstituencywiseS04195.htm?ac=195. Of course it will be too time consuming for me to visit every constituency and copy the data out to an excel, so I did the next laziest thing. It turns out that the source of this page is very predictable and a simple HTML parsing API can be used to extract the data out. I used Java and JSoup html parser for this.
So without further ado, here’s the raw data.
- Raw CSV Data for all states
- Excel sheet for all states
- Excel sheet for Assam
