Online Primary

January 30th, 2008 § 3 comments § permalink

Via Read/Write Web, an interesting site that simulates the US primary: Online Primary. According to the article, the site is an experiment in online elections–something I believe we are very far from being able to do, not because the technology is not here but because we can’t trust the established providers.

Very few people have “voted” using the site so far but it’s interesting to see that Democrats seems to be more likely to engage in such experiments and it’s also interesting to note the Barack Obama almost doesn’t have votes in the “Anybody But” category.

The Democratic nomination being about people rejecting a candidate and not about people choosing one, it will be fascinating to follow the site and see the nascent trends.
