I have QGIS.

I have a current shapefile of the political boundaries of Alaska's boroughs and census areas, acquired from the state's GIS engineers.

I have a PostgreSQL DB of AK election results going back to 1996 that I have beaten until it produces results by borough and census area.

All I want to do is make pretty little results maps that paint the political subdivisions degrees of red and blue.

I have absolutely no idea where to start or where to look for guidance. Can anyone point me in the direction of a "QGIS for Drooling Imbeciles" type of guide?

I had previously been using the MapViewer 7 and MapViewer 8 software, but this poses problems because the AK gsm sample files that come with the software are relentlessly inaccurate.

The QGIS Training Manual seems to me the most appropriate introductory course.

FWIW, I've found that I can get Golden MapViewer 8 to import the official state shape files and it should suffice for my needs.

I think I'll leave the realm of GIS to the people who actually have a modicum of spacial reasoning.
