Slate Quiz: Recognize the Year from the Electoral College Map

Lots of fun; take it here. Here’s Slate‘s blurb:

Today, Slate challenges its readers to demonstrate their grasp of presidential election history. Check out the 12 electoral maps randomly generated from presidential elections since 1860. States are shaded according to the party of the candidate who won them: red for Republicans, blue for Democrats, and green for third parties or even splits. For each map, pick the proper election out of four choices before the timer runs out. Every correct answer is worth 45 electoral votes. Collect 270 to come out on top.

I got 11 out of 12, which gave me a “Ronald Reagan” (apparently since my 45 x 11 = 495 wasn’t far from Reagan’s 489 electoral votes in 1980).
