2016 Indiana Governor Election

Below is a GeoFact of the Day Blog map showing the total number of votes received by Democratic candidate John Gregg and Eric Holcomb — the Republican candidate and current Governor of Indiana — during the November 8th, 2016 election. According to the Indiana Secretary of State's Election website (↗), voters in 79 counties elected Republican Eric Holcomb (shaded in rose and cherry red colors) as governor compared to 13 counties favoring Democrat John Gregg (shaded in periwinkle and blue colors). The counties with light blue (periwinkle) and light red (rose) colors indicate that the favored candidate had a smaller margin of victory, compared to the more-dominant voting percentages (%s) in darker blue and darker red counties. The five light-blue Democratic counties are Delaware, Perry, Saint Joseph, Tippecanoe, and Vermillion, and the eight darker-blue counties are Knox, Lake, LaPorte, Marion, Monroe, Porter, Sullivan, and Vigo. The five light-red Republican counties are Greene, Madison, Pike, Starke, and Vanderburgh.
