Parents choosing not to vaccinate their children live in both conservative and liberal areas of California

Parents choosing not to vaccinate their children live in both conservative and liberal areas of California
The map shows the percentage of parents in each California county who opted out of giving vaccines to their children for reasons of personal belief (the darker the shading the higher the percentage) and whether the county voted democratic (blue) or republican (red) in the 2012 presidential election. There’s no correlation between dominant political party and rate of personal belief exemptions.
