I was searching the internet this afternoon for a map of the electoral college that I could print out. I wanted a map of the United States with each state’s electoral votes, so the kids could color it in as results start streaming in.
I found one that worked but it was no longer available, even a cached copy, and its numbers were out of date for 2012. So I played with it in photoshop and made the changes for 2012.
I thought I’d share it with all of you in case your kids want to follow along as well. Looking forward to an exciting night! And I take it back, I guess I’ll talk about politics more than once.
In case you’re interested, here are the states whose electoral college votes changed in 2012:
WA +1 | NV +1 | AZ +1 | UT +1 | IA -1 | TX +4 | LA -1 | MO -1 | IL -1
MI -1 | OH -2 | GA +1 | SC +1 | FL +2 | PA -1 | NY -2 | MA -1 | NJ -1
