Campaigning for November elections here in Oklahoma is in full swing, but to date I feel largely uninformed. I want a mobile application or iOS app which lets me identify where I vote, and then provides me with information about all the candidates for whom I can vote in November. The app should also include web feed / RSS feed content from individual candidate sites. If I wasn’t working on two major writing projects right now I might actually entertain the idea of writing or paying to have this mobile app created. We need this for our republic, to empower ourselves to be more informed voters. Does an app like this exist anywhere yet? Road signs like those below (which I snapped with my iPhone this morning from the car and cropped with CropForFree) don’t help me become a more informed and educated voter.
