Excellent interactive Electoral College map

I found a great interactive map to keep tabs on the electoral votes, either as opinion polls change or as you follow along on election night.

Why I like it:

  • it quickly updates without reloading

  • each time you click a State, it toggles blue, red, or grey for "up for grabs"

  • with each click, each candidate's respective total updates too

You can play out different scenarios quickly: How many potential ties can you find? Yikes!
