It's not always black and white... or in this case, red & blue.
The first look at the above map from the Secretary of State's website after the initial election results were complete may leave some Kansans feeling like their voice doesn't matter.
You may be wondering why am I writing about the 2016 election...
It is because the 1st thing running through my mind looking at the 2018 Governor's race map is that KS does NOT HAVE an electoral college where each county is either completely red or blue
I was intrigued to see what that would look like, so I compiled a list of the election night results & put them into a spreadsheet,
Ha... only if cows and corn could vote.
The actual red/blue (initial) ballot totals were...
Wallace/Wichita co's: 1,279
Douglas/Wyandotte co's: 81,762
My curiosity was again peaked, and I wondered what a Kansas county map would look like as a cartogram according to population. Well, I put my primitive graphic design skills back to work to do just that.
