Due to the amount of work required, I won't be doing many, but pick whichever ones you'd like to see done.

I'd have liked to have seen 1952 done at some point. Might do it myself once I'm more comfortable with Congress Infinity

I have a start on an 1854 U.S. House of Representatives Election. It was very - interesting - because it had six or seven separate parties and one Independent all represented with actual seats - which is a record for a term of the U.S. House of Representatives, BTW.

'52 is a little far back for me, but I'll give it a gander.

WAY too far back for my to be of much use.

For 1952, I'm trying something. I'm having an unnamed independent on every district in the US, starting at 0 votes, to symbolize minor parties, write ins, etc.

But minor parties in 1952 went from far-left, Marxist parties like the Communist Party of the USA, the Socialist Labor Party, and the Socialist Party of America all the way to the far-right-wing, reactionary, hard segregationist and even with neo-Nazi flashes Nationalist States Rights Party, Christian Nationalist Party, the America First Party, and the Constitution Party (the short-lived '50's one from Texas, not the modern one), and thus, with that huge ideological range across the political extreme, right to it's extremes, how can you actually a sincere and real platform to a generic "minor party" candidate in each district, out of curiosity?

What I'm Rolling with is looking at where candidates from minor parties ran, and increasing candidate strength there by one, and having a very generic, pure center platform (as an average). Independent progressives (an actual party) will get their own party.

To save on duplicate work or a nice base for a Senate election, I have already done a 1994 House campaign 1994 - House of Representatives :)

Awesome, Since I've been tipped to start at 1952, I'll start there, and maybe work up through the years.
