Some maps

Marijn van Hoorn Inkscape? Arcgis? No thanks — i prefer to make my maps in Google Sheets.

A map of governors of U.S. states.
“??%” doesn’t literally mean an unknown percentage — it just means that there was no easily available summary and i wasn’t willing to combine hundreds of district results just to figure out what shade a cell on a spreadsheet should be.
A map of U.S. senators.
A map of the U.S. House of Representatives.

(I’d love to do something like this for the UK, but this style, i suspect, works well with the United States and exclusively the United States — other federal countries don’t have enough states, and unitary countries’ internal borders are too fluid for me to be able to plan something like this out properly.)
