Android Presidential Election – Vote2008!

A new Android application is on the market called Vote2008 which allows Android users in the United States to vote for either Barack Obama or John McCain. After you vote (you can’t change, so pick wisely) you’re able to see the poll results in percentage and vote total which can be refreshed in Real Time!

The application is sponsored by and we’ve set up a Political Sub-Forum for people to voice their opinions with spirited debate (keep it friendly, please!) The application was developed by and there will be more applications from them in the future.

Votalizer’s upcoming applications are a mystery but we’ll keep you posted!

In the meantime, if you don’t plan on voting in the REAL election, Votalizer is encouraging you to… simply visit from your computer or mobile phone and you can see where your designated election location is… you MUST go to the proper place or you cannot cast a ballot.

We look forward to spirited political debate with you on!

    This application serves no purpose since it does not list ALL the legally legitimate 2008 Presidential candidates:

    John McCain — Republican Party
    Barack Obama — Democratic Party
    Charles O. Baldwin — Constitution Party
    Robert L. Barr, Jr. — Libertarian
    Cynthia Ann McKinney — Green Party
    Ralph Nader — Natural Law Party

    Like them or not, it amounts to manipulation of the Presidential Election process for the mainstream media and anyone else to ignore the other candidates. Of course they don’t have a chance when they are completely ignored. I actually have smart friends that truly thought McCain and Obama were the only choices.

    While cute, statistically speaking people who support McCain aren’t going to have smartphones. Don’t get me wrong. There are tech savvy McCain supporters, however there are major gulfs between the two.

    @Fish Kungfu – regardless of who is to blame, the other candidates are a non-factor so for an application that’s meant to be more fun and interesting than meaningful, scrunching the screen with non-factor candidates didn’t seem worth the trouble.

    @SiliconAddict – completely agree… the app wasn’t meant to provide a projection of who would actually win the election but more to show what the composition of Android Enthusiasts was on the election issue.
