Assignment

Fill in a US map, marking each state either red or blue* then total the number of electoral votes for each candidate. The closest to the correct number is the winner. In the case of a tie, the winners will share the top prize.

You can go to the 2012 Electoral Map and then print out your prediction. Or you can print out a blank electoral map and then color it in and calculate the total number of electoral votes on your own. Turn your map in for your grade. You will have 1 point deducted on your grade for each electoral vote you are off.
