Description

Using census data and swing state forecasts, this story explores how the electoral college and differences in turnout affect the voting power of Americans of different ages, genders, and races. It includes an interactive tool that lets readers explore the data and calculate their personal voting power score. We found that because many of them live in relatively “safe” states, the power of Black, Hispanic and Asian-American voters to choose the president was lower than that of white voters.
