  • PRElection (Development)
    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/prelection/id559954385

    Can’t wait until November 6 to know the results of the 2012 election? Anonymously PREvote for President and all 468 Congressional elections with the PRElection app and help PREdict the election!

    PRElection is an app that allows you to PREvote for the candidate of your choice, and to PREdict the election before November 6. PRElection is not a poll. It is a continuous tally of how people intend to vote on November 6 – effectively, it is “early voting.” All holders of the PRElection app cast an anonymous vote for their candidate. If you change your mind, simply edit your vote. The PRElection app keeps track of the change, and updates the overall results. Unlike telephone polls that include only about 3,000 people, the entire count of all PRElection voters is always complete, and unlike internet polls, you can only cast one vote.

    PRElection also allows you to learn about the candidates and their positions from within the app, and even to make donations directly to the candidates (through the candidates websites via Safari).
