French Departmental Elections 2015: Result Summaries by Canton and Commune

During the 2015 departmental elections, we set up a web service to generate texts in real time, presenting the election results both by canton and by commune. Our texts appeared next to the results charts on each administrative division’s dedicated page. Overall, our robot writer covered all 2,054 French cantons and over 34,000 communes. This made it possible for online newspaper Le Monde to cover the elections extensively and produce 36,000 texts overnight.
