Print CLXVIII

A schematic representation of four party voting compositions.

An equilateral tetrahedron is unfolded to illustrate one possible way of showing the voting composition in Scotland.

The diagram shows how a tetrahedron can be drawn as a net of four equilateral triangles, each possibly containing the group of places which would be closest to that side, if the places were projected in a three dimensional analogue of the electoral triangle. The net can be subdivided into twenty-four areas, each containing a particular ordering of the parties. The order for any one party forms a star like shape, centred on its apex shown here for the Conservatives. Each triangle of the net contains all those places where one particular party came in fourth position.

Second print from a series of five.
