Map Of the United States Redrawn For 50 States Equal In Population
See the art project by Neil Freeman, in which he redistributes the United States in response to recent criticism of the electoral college system so that there are 50 states with equal populations.
According to Freeman,”The fundamental problem of the electoral college is that the states of the United States are too disparate in size and influence. The largest state is 66 times as populous as the smallest and has 18 times as many electoral votes. This allows for Electoral College results that don’t match the popular vote. To remedy this issue, the Electoral Reform Map redivides the fifty United States into 50 states of equal population. The 2010 Census records a population of 308,745,538 for the United States, which this map divides into 50 states, each with a population of about 6,175,000.“
