I was wondering if there's any R packages with out-of-the-box
functions for this sort of thing.
Can you please let us know, if you find any.

Do you have a URL for detailed election results?
Or even better, a nice R-friendly CSV file...

I recognize that the results aren't complete.
And that such a file may need to be updated later.
But that doesn't necessarily prevent modelling now.
