As part of an effort to modernize some parts of this forum, I've redone the EV calculator completely. You can check it out here:

https://talkelections.org/FORUM/index.php?action=evcalc

Some notable changes:

  • Clickable map allows toggling party control without using radio buttons
  • Ability to insert custom text for each state's tooltip
  • Can easily change electoral votes
  • Set custom candidates and parties
  • Has EV progress bars that can be embedded with map
  • Party/candidate legend
  • "Prediction mode" with "flipped" status - standardizes prediction shades for use on forum
  • Crisper map graphics
  • Edit other people's map by hovering cursor over maps embedded in post and clicking edit link

Special thanks to Solid for help with pre-CW Virginia coordinates, and Bacon King for a ton of data entry and other help.

I've done extensive testing so far, but there might still be some bugs, so if you notice anything, please let me know.

This will just be the first version of this map generator. I'm already working on expanding to state-level maps and senate prediction maps, and maybe more into the future, a congressional map.

So awesome!!!

My only complaint is that West Virginia should be before Wisconsin alphabetically.

I think PA should put to D>40% instead since Biden didn't pass 50% here.

By the way the new format look great!

Thumbs up! Great work, as usual, Virginia. I actually consider using blue for Democrats now.

Maybe a random thought: An additional field to fill in the national popular vote percentage?

You could input it yourself - click on one of the states on the list. The actual name. It'll expand a set of options where you can add tooltip text that shows when a user hovers over a state/district on the map. You can also change the # of electoral votes assigned to that state.

Technically, the ISO 3166-2 standard state name abbreviations for Wisconsin and West Virginia are WI and WV, respectively. That means when sorting them alphabetically, WV goes after WI. Maybe sometime in the future I'll re-do how the lists are sorted, but right now it's more work than it is worth.

I think PA should put to D>40% instead since Biden didn't pass 50% here.

By the way the new format look great!

I thought he did? Wikipedia has him at 50.01% and NYT at 50.0%

Nice work!! It's going to be fun converting all my old maps.

You're using the old MS flag, although I assume that it hasn't officially changed yet.

As for PA I was told the State SoS site has the latest numbers and that Biden has majority, barely.

Would it be possible to have an option for 2024 EV projections?

Yeah, I was just waiting on that. I also need an icon of the new flag that is the same size as the others.

Damn. Welcome to the 21st century, Atlas!

Great work, Virginia.

Probably not before the census is complete and the EVs are reallocated.

Very very minor bug found re: NE/ME. The electoral votes display correctly but are high. Low priority.

And a secular, non-authoritarian blog with that.

This is very nice and clean, although I have to admit it doesn’t quite have the charm of the old-style maps.
