Election results by precinct, AISD bonds

When I heard we were doing a precinct-level map of election results for print, I figured I really needed to do one online, where readers could really study it. I had the county clerk send me an example file so I could play with it and figure out how I might show the results, and prepared to do the map on Mother's Day, the day following the election. Print had their analysis story pegged for Monday's edition.

When I saw how close the votes were on all the proposals (they each passed or fell by fewer than 1000 votes), I wanted to highlight how close those races were, and where they were closest. I choose to highlight just the closest 5% to center, which would've tipped the scale either way.
