Which state’s capital do you live closest to?

The map above is a Voronoi diagram of the contiguous United States. The colored shapes show the areas that are closer to each state capital than to any other. For example, the northwest corner of North Carolina is closer to Charleston, West Virginia than to Raleigh or any other capital city. Many thanks, as always, to Seth Kadish for sharing his work with Know More.
