Senate and House races are on

Posted to Maps  |  Nathan Yau

I’m not proud of this, but I know very little about what’s going on with these 2010 midterm elections. The New York Times just put up their election maps on the race though — for governor, House and Senate seats — so at least you have a way to get informed in a hurry.

Solid blue is solid Democratic seats, solid red is solid Republican, and the rest are seats in play. Yellow represent tossups. Better keep an eye on those.

The above covers the House. There are also maps for Senate and governors.

Pattern fills are all the rage now. Love it. For some reason I have the urge to look up OshKosh B’gosh.
