Can we add faithless electors in the maps
IIRC Virginia said she was working on it as part of the new update that will also include the pre-1836 maps.

I didn't actually want to devote any more time to faithless electors because it was a huge design change, but when I started doing the Senate prediction maps, I realized the best way to do it was to do full support for proportional electoral vote allocation, which includes faithless elector support. The Senate maps would just treat each region's "electoral votes" as "seats" and would have 2 each. Governor maps would be the same, except 1. In addition to faithless/proportional allocation, it will also allow non-voting/unpledged electors, as occasionally happened in late/early 1700s/1800s.

To achieve this I created an entire "vote manager" control that can be expanded under each region on the list. I'll post screenshots tonight to get some feedback.

Maybe Canada can be added in at some point, at least in the way Puerto Rico is technically usable.
