Google Does Elections

Thank the heavens for Lifehacker!

Today I was browsing though some posts on Lifehacker and found out that Google Earth have created a Election 2006 overlay. This shows a graphical overlay of where the congressional districts (at this stage it’s only federal election information), and click on the (patriotic) star gives you the information on who the candidates are for this race, along with links to funding information over at the Federal Elections Commission and Center for Responsive Politics (otherwise known as Open Secrets).

Now if this information was available yesterday, I could have incorporated it into the Equality|Frisco election guide I spent most of the day working on.

Check out the new overlay on Google Earth. Fab-O!
