Abstract

Collective behavior is a phenomena emerged from interacting elements of a complex system. This paper is a preliminary study for the spatial analysis to investigate the spatial characteristics from the correlations within election data. We demonstrate the emerged scale-free spatial correlation by the power law exhibited with the correlation length scaled over the size of the system. The analysis confirmed the collective behavior in voting and election processes in which local elements related to the global view of the system. Furthermore, the implementation of the community derectiom algorithm as the result of the election modeled as weighted correlation network demonstrated some correlated geographical clusters and the patterns they represented. Interestingly, the analysis has opened extended explanation on the geo-political characteristics within a nation, as exemplified by observing the election in Germany in 2013. Further analyses investigating the robustness of this aspects are opened.
