French Election Results in Google Earth - France only?

[UPDATE May 6th: See new details on this layer from May 6th.]

French Presidential Elections in French Google EarthThis is very interesting. Renaud Euvrard of France sent me an E-mail this morning that Google has released the French presidential Election results (1st round) in Google Earth. He blogs about it and even shows screenshots of the layer. What is interesting is that I don't see this layer in Google Earth. Apparently, Google has released the layer just for those who view it from France. In fact, Renaud pointed out there is a press release at the French Google Earth web site here. Now, it is possible Google just hasn't pushed out the layer to everyone yet - or wants an English translated version before they do. But, I find it interesting to consider the possibility of local information being made available in Google Earth only for local viewers.

[UPDATE 11:45: As suggested by one of my readers, if you turn on "View->All Layers" in the Layers pane, you can find the new French Elections layer (it is not one of the "Core" layers). I'm surprised I didn't think to check that myself, but since some of you may make the same mistake, I thought I would point it out.]

    The "French Presidential Election 2007" layer is available for all users, not for France only. Maybe you'd select "All Layers" from "Layers" panel.

    It looks as if the google earth url showing the French election results has been disabled. I write this as of 13.15 French time.

    John G. - Try turning on "View->All Layers" in the "Layers" pane. The Election layer is not a "Core" layer. I made the same mistake when I first heard about the layer and made my post.
