How do I create an electoral map in which some of the states are colored yellow?

Change the # of indies at the bottom of the EV calculator to 2 and select the "O" column for those states.

There's no "o" column except on the simpler version that doesn't generate maps as far as I know.

When you generate the map link, you can also change whichever states you want to be yellow to =4 instead of 1 or 2 or 3.

Now I see what you were telling me. I tried that, but it doesn't work for Maine or Nebraska.

Oh yeah. I think you just have to edit the link manually for those. When you generate the map link, it has things like NJ=2 and things like that. Maine and Nebraska are at the end of the link. If you want them to be yellow, you can go in and make them ME=4 and NE=4 and do the same for the congressional districts however you want.

There might be an easier way, but I don't know it.

That stinks.

They definitely should redesign the color-choosing portion of the website. It also took me a long time to figure out to click "evc" to get the electoral map generator.
