2 elections, nearly 30 years apart…. I knew I had seen this somewhere.

What you’re looking at:

The map on the left details Tuesday’s primary between Kim Foxx and Anita Alvarez.   The Green/Purple shades are Kim Fox.  The Yellow/Brown shades are Anita Alvarez.

The map on the right outlines 1987’s mayoral election between Harold Washington and Edward Vrdolyak.  The purple shades are Harold.  The red is Vrdolyak.
