Mapping the election

Via Mike Stucka on the National Institute for Computer-Assisted Reporting listserv (and it also was linked on Fark.com) comes this interesting collection of maps showing how states and counties voted in Tuesday’s presidential election. Some are colored according to acreage, some according to population. Some have a binary color scheme, simply showing which states or counties each candidate carried, and some are colored according to a range of voting percentages (those areas without a big spread are colored purple).

I like maps in general (thus the categorization of this post as “fun”), so I found this pretty cool. But it’s all I’m going to post about the election.
