"Electoral College 2016"
Matthew J. Schultz

The Idea

I wanted to accurately capture the highly polarized and complex nature of the 2016 election, and I found it by combining media's infographic portrayal of electoral college voting, with our flag:

  • Blue: Democrats/Left-leaners
  • Red: Republican/Right-leaners
  • White: Undecided/Abstainers
The varying shades of color illustrate the diverse nature of the voters within each group. I left the non-voters completely without color or varying shades; their lack of action, which affected the election, also communicated their desire to remain anonymous, and not be counted.
