Unsatisfactory Electoral Systems affect most North Americans

Based on population, the map captures the percentage of electoral unfairness in North American including population figures from Central America.
The FDA derived the 84 percent electoral unfairness metric based on 2011 and 2012 audits of the American, Canadian, and Mexican electoral systems. Unsatisfactory electoral fairness means that there are major and minor deficiencies in an electoral process, which weaken the legitimacy of election outcomes. The American, Canadian, and Mexican electoral systems have significant deficiencies in legislation pertaining to electoral finance and political content of media.

Population is used for analysis due to it association with democracy via one person one vote. 

The Central American countries comprise 16 percent or 86,148,000 of the North American population.

The United States comprises 67.7 percent of the 84 percent zone of unsatisfactory electoral fairness.
