Abstract or Description

This map highlights regions in Maine that vote Democratic and Republican as well as shows the income distribution throughout the state by county. In addition, it displays the relationship between County median household income and the percentage of votes that a Republican Maine State Senate candidate received in the 2014 election. ArcGIS was used to create this map incorporating GIS layers from the Maine Office of GIS and used data from Ballotpedia to create additional layers. The map uses the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83) and the Universal Transverse Mercator Zone 19N projection.
