Voting by age. Staggering.


I really wish people would stop sharing this image and share actual percentages instead (image below).

Yes, there is a generational difference but it isn't a 0-100% thing. These sort of visuals allow people to comfortably ignore 20-something white supremacist Tory brats while also ignoring poor elderly quietly struggling.

First-past-the-post is a terrible voting system but it's even worse if it's used as a representation of reality instead of statistics.

@ceejbot @InternetKevin Interesting but worth noting, from Election Maps on Twitter: "This has been flying around Twitter since the election. This is NOT data from the 2019 election, it is from September 2018.

Though I do plan to update these very soon..."
