  4. 4. Elections 2013 An application was developed for Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), that when executed from Excel “live” did the following: 1. Connected to the official site presenting the electoral results minute by minute, presenting data from each province, locality, and department. 2. With those data it did an analysis and generated Excel Spreadsheets with the following data: - Total and partial number of votes for deputies and senators, by party, province, and locality, in absolute values and percentages referred to the total voter registration, effective votes, percentages of votes counted, etc. - Number of votes for deputies in each province and, applying the D’Hont method, it indicated the seats obtained by each party and the name of the candidate occupying a seat. - The names of the candidates that obtained seats in each chamber - Results by related zones, such as: rural zones, urban zones, soya plantation zones, oil zones, glacier zones, insecure zones, flood zones, Sarmiento railroad area, provinces dominated by Kirchnerism, areas dominated by Massa, areas dominated by Insaurralde, Patagonia, Cuyo (central western Andes zone), and others.
  5. 5. Primaries and General Election • For the Primaries (August 12) the News App identify the parties, and the lists inside each party, and the results were shown in decreasing order. • For General Elections (October 27th) only parties, the premises were the same.

  7. 7. NewsApp basis Two tables are the basis for this newsapp: • Table containing the name of each province, de number of senate seats (only one third of the provinces) and deputies seats, and the number of votants (D´Hont model requires more than 1,5% votes of the total). • Table containing the name and ID of each party and list, and the name of candidates, in the same order they appear in the list. • Runs the election day every 10 minutes searching in the official site for new results.
