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.

  1. 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.
