You’ve already seen everyone else’s electoral map (see this amazing array of maps from 2008), how would you like to make your own?

Today’s Gist allows you to do just that — input (manually!) state-by-state results, and output a beautiful choropleth map of presidential election results!

This code, of course, can be used for any number of state-level measures, so you might want to bookmark this one for future use.
