How much did your neighborhood support marriage equality?
I have been working on a new, interactive format of elections mapping for a few months now. With the legalization of same-sex marriage, I figured now would be the first time to debut it with a relevant set of data: the marriage equality results for King County when we voted on it in 2012.
The map shows intense support in Seattle and its wealthier suburbs, with more mixed results in working-class communities of South King County. Overall, King County voted 67% for marriage equality, with Seattle especially supportive at 82%. Results ranged from a low of 42% in rural Enumclaw to a high of 95% in the Broadway neighborhood of Seattle’s Capitol Hill.
