This is a historic election with massive volume.
Various media outlets spend significant resources doing almost this, but they, whatever their history, have a vested interest in an information differential.
A significant unfilled gap is raw sourced (permanently, by hash) data (like pictures of rallies) on IRL engagement and social media engagement (like live stream viewer counts).
- polling station locations in a county
- expected waiting times
- ballot box posting locations
- ballot box deadlines
- voter registration deadlines
- initiatives in a county
The other thing is I had to go through a little bit of searching to find my mail in ballot online form. Time for that is running out, but I bet clear links to that for every state would be nice.
A Reddit like clone for each of these states would be good to see what others are also saying about finding these links, locations, reported issues.
You’ve got about 5 or so do days to get this up for any of this to be useful before time runs out, best of luck.
It’s weird how states send out these text broadcasts for coronavirus info and phone notifications for Amber alerts and hurricanes, but we don’t do it for election information. There is a lot to be desired for sure in this space.
