If only white men could vote

Here’s how the electoral map of Tuesday’s election would’ve looked if we were pre-1870 America.

    That’s really, really sad.

    A question: do white men vote at higher rates than people of color or women? Especially interested in Red states. Can someone do that analysis for me?

    As a white male let me just say, “thank God voting isn’t restricted to my demographic group”. Interestingly, if I were to move from Minnesota, I’ve always thought Oregon would be my first choice, with Maine/Vermont/New Hampshire in second.

    PS. Are any other demographic groups accepting honorary memberships?

    @tboom as someone who lived in Oregon. Don’t do it. Very weird place. Very big gun culture.

    As someone who lives in the non hick portions of Oregon (eg salem, eugene, portland) the ‘gun culture’ is almost non-existent. Most of the state is gun totin ‘publicans except for the major metropolitan regions.
