Website is the only single online destination listing polling places for all of California's 58 Counties.
HOLLYWOOD, Fla., June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- eVoter (http://www.eVoter.com/CA), is California's first online destination where candidates, voters and endorsing organizations connect. It is the only statewide online location where voters in all of California's 58 counties can find their polling places and view an interactive sample ballot with candidate information and organization endorsements.
"eVoter is the only website where voters from Eureka to San Diego can search all of the 4,033 candidates running for office in the June 8th primary election and find them on an interactive sample ballot," said Adam Kravitz, CEO of Political Technologies, owners and operators of eVoter.com. "Voters who are looking for their polling place can also find information on candidates in an easy to use interface, and then make their choices and print off their own personal voter guide to take to the polls with them."
"Since the launch of our California site in April, over 100,000 California voters have visited eVoter and candidates and organizations who have posted profiles and endorsements have been viewed thousands of times," said Philip Muller, president of Political Technologies. "Based on our previous experience, our traffic will increase exponentially today and Tuesday as hundreds of thousands of voters head online to look for voting information."
"In the past few weeks, we have gotten hundreds of calls and e-mails to our customer service thanking us for launching eVoter. It is clear that voters want to go online and access election information in their own way and at their own pace," added Kravitz. "One woman told us that she was making her decisions by printing out her sample ballot, keeping it by her phone, and then crossing off every candidate that made a robo-call to her. Obviously, we hope that people will also use our service to read profiles and consider endorsements – but what we are really about is giving voters the tools to empower themselves in their own way."
