Free Color-In 2016 Electoral College Map
Yesterday, we had one of our Irregular Times readers pose an Electoral College challenge – could Jeb Bush actually put together enough state victories to win the general presidential election? To be able to address this challenge, it was necessary to refer to a list of the delegates that each state is able to send to the Electoral College.
Listing out the delegates by state is nice and orderly on a spreadsheet, but it’s more aesthetically pleasing when the exercise can be completed on a map – one colored in with red for Donald Trump, blue for Hillary Clinton, and if you dare to dream, green for the Green Party candidate Jill Stein (Brown for Libertarian Gary Johnson and elephant grey for independent right winger Evan McMullin? Choose your own colors here. ).
Click on the image of one of the maps below, and you’ll be taken to a PNG graphic file of a printable color-in map of the United States, showing the Electoral College delegates that are to be awarded by each state. Use this to follow the results as they come in on Election Night, to see who the next President of the United States will be.
270 Electoral College votes wins the election!
We’ve designed two maps for different aesthetic tastes. One color-in Electoral College map is a standard, straight line representation of the country.
The second map is more of an improvisational scribble, for the back-of-the-napkin types. The information is the same.
