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 effected the election, also communicated their desire to remain anonymous, and not be counted.
