Abstract
A Bayesian cluster analysis for the results of an election based on multinomial mixture models is proposed. The number of clusters is chosen based on the careful comparison of the results with predictive simulations from the models, and by checking whether models capture most of the spatial dependence in the results. By implementing the analysis on five recent elections in Barcelona, the reader is walked through the choice of the best statistics and graphical displays to help chose a model and p...
