miVOTER.org from the WCDP

The Washtenaw County Democratic Party (WCDP) introduces miVoter.org, a way to have all endorsed Democratic candidates for the November 8 election literally at your fingertips in the voting booth.

On any device, including cell phones, a user can enter their name, ZIP code, and birth year and month, and the program will display the endorsed Democrats for every office, tailored for that particular voter.  No more filling in paper ballots to take with you.  No more having to look through races you’re not eligible to vote in.  The information is completely personalized. 

Further, clicking on the name of a candidate that has been displayed will bring up a summary of the candidate’s background and qualifications for the office.

 miVoter.org is available statewide, but in counties outside Washtenaw, only candidates down to US House of Representatives are included.  Voters in Jackson, Livingston, and Wayne Counties may have complete results before the election, and eventually, complete results will be available for the entire state.
