Election app, guides available online

Thursday, October 30, 2014 by Mark Richardson

If you are planning to vote in the Nov. 4 election (and you know you should), there’s an app for that. There are also voting guides, candidate profiles, district maps and lists of polling places, all online. The League of Women Voters is sponsoring  “The Voting App” in Austin for this election. You can download the app to your tablet or smartphone from iTunes or the Google store. Once installed, enter your address, and the app will provide you with information on all the candidates in your district. The app was developed by ThinkVoting for the League of Women Voters, who say if the Austin test goes well in this election, they plan on taking it nationwide. In addition, the City of Austin is providing online information for the 10-1 Council elections. Go online to find information about each district’s Council and mayoral candidates, their official video statements, and demographic information for each district. It will also show you a map of your district. If you like your election information with an environmental spin, check out the Austin EcoNetwork’s Election Navigator. It provides each candidate’s environmental record as well as environmental issues in each Council district. And for basic information such as where to find your voting precinct on Election Day, there’s the always the reliable Travis County Elections page.
