State of my Democracy by Graphicacy

Graphicacy helps Vote Run Lead reveal the vast underrepresentation of women in state legislatures. This exploratory visualization tool allows the user to see gaps in representation for every state, learn about issues of importance, and take action.

The State of My Democracy explorer offers options for national and state views. In both views, users can see data for different racial and ethnic identity groups as well as for overall women of color. One of the demographic groups included is men, which illustrates the staggering contrast in representation. When there’s a major gap in representation, a preview card appears that users can share on Twitter with a single click. The charts are sortable by Representation, Size of Gap, or Abortion Access. On each of these views, the state with the biggest gap is highlighted.
