"Bad dates", is a classic line from "Raiders of the Lost Ark", and bad dates appears to be a recurring quirk of the 21st century. How does the 2008 election rate as the first campaign of the 21st century? What happened to the 2004 campaign?
One of the biggest sets of information that people need to take advantage of the Internet in Politics is election results. I've been working on this for a few years now, and getting election results from the county auditors and state governments is always hit and miss. Some publish results down to the precinct level for each and every vote, some don't even have websites.The actual results themselves are public information, and the act of collecting them should be made as simple as possible, by Google and other search engines. You've been doing this off and on, but I would love to see Google put some effort into making the results from recent and past elections on the web in ways that can be used by activists on all sides of the debate to use in targeting and increasing effective campaigns. It's what I've been doing, and it's a lot of fun and work.Chad LupkesSeattleWebcrafters.com
