It took me most of Tuesday and Wednesday to crunch the 2008 election results from Pierce County and start comparing them to 2004.

We’re still analyzing the data to get a better sense of what happened and why. But that’s no reason not to share our initial findings with you, dear reader.

After the jump are several maps I put together — from voter turnout to how many votes in each precinct Gregoire picked since the last election. We’d love to hear your thoughts on how things are changing. (Stay tuned for a story.)
