New election Web site launches for voters in Illinois
From press release
eVoter, the first Web site where voters, candidates and endorsing organizations connect, has launched in Illinois ahead of the Feb. 2 primary election.
The non-partisan Web site provides voters with the accurate, up-to-date information they need to make informed decisions on Election Day. From statewide races for governor and U.S. Senator to candidates running for office in Winnebago County, eVoter allows Rockford voters to look up and print off their personal ballot on eVoter.
“We’re pleased to announce the launch of eVoter in Illinois just in time for the primary campaign season,” said Adam Kravitz, CEO of Political Technologies LLC, owners and operators of eVoter. “Research shows that in the 2008 election more than half of all voters used the Internet for political information and research, but before eVoter, there wasn’t a single Web site where voters could meet all of their election needs.”
According to Kravitz, hits to the eVoter site are rapidly increasing with visitors from around the state accessing the site every day. Voters can now see a variety of candidate profiles and filter their ballot by endorsements of select organizations.
eVoter allows voters to locate their polling place, generate and print a customized ballot, access an absentee ballot, look up endorsements from registered organizations, and donate to campaigns if candidates have a live profile.
In addition to the voter tools, candidates can purchase and customize an online profile, and endorsing organizations can publicize their candidate endorsements for a low cost.
Illinois, which has the nation’s first primary election in 2010, is the first state where eVoter is available. Political Technologies plans to provide the service in more than a half-dozen states by the 2010 general election and all 50 states by 2012.
eVoter is the unbiased, non-partisan election information site where voters can generate a personalized sample ballot instantly, view candidate profiles, make contributions, view organizational endorsements, find polling places, request absentee ballot applications, and more. Owned and operated by Florida-based Political Technologies LLC (www.politicaltechnologies.com), eVoter is designed with the goal of providing voters with concise, unbiased information about every candidate and measure on their ballot. With 7,000-plus Illinois primary election candidates listed and 11,000-plus polling places, eVoter is the destination for 2010 Illinois Primary Election information.
