The article deals with the concept of an electoral landscape, it is noted that its content includes both electoral phenomena proper and phenomena considered as factors that influence them. The point of view is stated that the method of qualitative background is better suited for cartographic reflection of the electoral landscape. In connection with the practical orientation of electoral subjects, it is important to map not only the primary information, but also display the results of analytical work. Based on the study of the correlation of electoral phenomena with socio-economic and worldview phenomena, support factors have been established for each of the three main political parties. The results of the elections to the State Duma of the Russian Federation in 2016 were used. In terms of the quantitative ratio of ??support factors / actually provided support?, four types of electoral predisposition of RF subjects were identified. These are regions of sustained-increased support for a particular party, regions of sustained-lower support, regions of potential increase and potential downgrade of support. The maps of the Russian Federation reflect the distribution of types of electoral predisposition in the Russian Federation.
