How much is your vote worth?


This map – from Saturday’s New York Times – illustrates just how far we sit from “one person – one vote” when it comes to presidential elections.  It “shows each state re-sized in proportion to the relative influence of the individual voters who live there. The numbers indicate the total delegates to the Electoral College from each state, and how many eligible voters a single delegate from each state represents.”
