History of USA senate [video] [OC]

Post by vermis on Tue Jul 11, 2017 6:25 am



This is timelapse I created showing history of USA Senate, how they swithed from party to party over time. For this projekt I decided to split all states into two parts to show both of two seats each state have. I find this method more useful than using stripes ar mixed color (aka purple for dem/gop) in times when state senators were from different parties, also this way I could show the history of each individual seat so I put numbers denoting which senate classes seats belong to.

If you dont know senate classes are for determining when particular senator face re-election. All classes have re-elections two years apart or put it other way one third of senate is elected every two years.

This video also show senate vacancies, but only long ones (nearly a year, years), vacancies that only lasted days, weeks or a few months arent shown due to timeframe of my gif being one year althrought there were many of them in almost all states.

I also added names of serving presidents and vice presidents (vices are presidents of the senate so I figured I will add them as well) in each frame (hope that helps). Senate majority leaders only appear 1920s because that title didnt exist before 1920s.


Furthermore there is also a GIF version: https://i.imgur.com/Gb28zfj.gifv, and album of each frame: https://imgur.com/a/W4jOm if you are interested in that.

I just started doing similar video about House of Representatives, but that will take a while to make because if the shear size of it (much more people than there was senators or governors) and complexity of it, so bear with me.
