map of the presidential election
Admitted to the Union on August 1, 1876, Colorado was the last U.S. state leaving its legislative to choose the electors. To imagine the strength of parties within the new state at this time, the popular vote for concomitant election of the Governor is mapped. National totals exclude these votes (14,154 Republican and 13,316 Democratic, accordancing with the 14 Republican and 12 Democratic electors selected by the Assembly for the presidential election).

In Virginia, for reasons of clarity and overall coherence, the Independent Cities are combined with the counties from which they arise.
