In three days, municipal elections will be underway in Victoria and Vancouver. Both cities have launched iPhone apps that are essentially voters’ guides to candidate profiles, voting locations, voter eligibility, up to date news, and more. These apps are a great way to stay informed right from your iPhone, and save paper in the process.
Victoria Votes is the City of Victoria’s official app for the 2011 Civic Election . This app connects you with up-to-date information, including who is eligible to vote, where to go to vote, voting dates and times, as well as how to vote if you are disabled or unable to make it to a voting place and wish to vote using mail balloting. You can also find a list of the candidates here.
