If you are like the average American, you cannot help but get lost with all the considerations you need to make before you cast that one very important vote. With all the information you need to process - background, speeches, debates, track records, history of achievements - filtering down to what is essential and nuisance can be a feat.
For this reason, we provide you 5 apps which we hope can make voting easy for you this election time. Check them out to help you make one of the most important decisions you can make for you and the future generation!
Instead of looking for who to support, Voter will find who supports you by matching you up with a candidate with your same political outlook. You will answer questions in the app and the system will look through loaded data and display the candidate who best aligns with your views. Other app additions would be showing you where to vote, when to be there and what to bring in this big day.
You want to devour all information and follow every activity your US Presidential Candidates are doing but it can be impossible due to time constraints and the bulk of information you need to filter through. Real Clear Politics (RCP) can still make this happen for you by gathering all the events that matter. Every morning and throughout the day, it delivers news highlights, the best commentaries, analysis, videos, polls and all the other important issues of the day so you don't miss out on any of them.
Frontrunner is a simple app which consists of one line graph per party to allow you to be in-the-know of the candidates who are polling over time. With a single swipe, you have the ability to choose who to follow and who to dismiss. For those that you chose to follow, you can have information of the latest combined polls to see how each are doing in the current race.
Are you a conservative? A libertarian perhaps? U Can Vote is a simple app which provides easy-to-answer, but targeted, quizzes surrounding current political issues. This goal is to collect your answers and direct you to which party you are most aligned with and help you decide from there. Try this one out as you may be surprised of the outcome of your scores.
Debateball aims to get people engaged and have fun while they are at it. This brings two American favorites together - baseball and debates - in order to help us filter through all the things our candidates have to say. Upon deciding which debate to play on, you can make your call and decide whether to tag candidate answers as:
STRIKE: Really bad answer that didn't address the question.
FOUL: Poor answer that didn't answer the question.
WALK: Good answer but still didn't answer the question.
HIT: Actually answered the question.
HOME RUN: Actually answered the question with a good, even great, answer.
Yours tags gain corresponding points which allow a candidate to advance towards bases and gain scores, and ultimately help you determine who you think won the debate. This will give you a realization on who among the candidates are aligned with your views and lead you to the person to vote.
