Personality Kevin UhrmacherI am a graphics editor for politics at The Washington Post. In that role, my work includes mapping trends in election results, analyzing data about President Trump’s political appointees and explaining the impact of congressional policies. I also help maintain the PostGraphics social accounts and improve efficiencies in the team’s workflow.

In September of 2015, I helped plan and execute our team’s coverage of Pope Francis’s trip to America. I have also contributed to our coverage of the 2016 electionChinese island building in the South China Sea, college sexual assault and the Tsarnaev Boston bombing trial.

Since then I have covered the Trump administration transition, the debate over Republican  health-care overhaul and other  policy  debates, and elections (elections, and more  elections).

I’m also the renowned keeper of the Post Graphics candy dish and enjoy speaking with college students about the power of design and my work at The Post.

I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill (Go Heels!) in 2014, where I double majored in journalism (editing & graphic design) and political science.
