At a focus group today for the digital natives project (and our book, Born Digital), an interviewee mentioned VoteGopher. It’s very clever: a site by students that helps you decide who to vote for. The founder is a Harvard College sophomore, Will Ruben. It’s a much more fun and interesting site that some of the traditional voter-information sites. A combination of straightforward user-interface and lots of information goes a long way. Check out the page on Barack Obama, then compare candidate positions on various issues.
I use this website as an influence free path for whom I will choose as my next president. I have never encountered such a site so articulate, organized and well thought out. I praise greatly the students who created this click of a mouse election guide. Thank you dearly.
