Weighted Voronoi Chart?

Noticed this in today’s New York Times. It looks like a weighted voronoi chart, the first one I’ve ever seen, where the weights are electoral votes for each state in the November faceoff. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Electoral College in the US, consider yourselves lucky.

How to add more weight to the single added point.gh (6.9 KB)

i can draw this by hand but would like to be able to change to placement of the buildings(which have to stay in a row of four.

I added my primitive script. I tried to use boundary’s in the radii but that did not work as planned. also i’m not even sure that a vonoroi is the way to go but it sounded the most logical.
