Vote for Vote Report!

BY Nancy Scola | Friday, March 13 2009

Twitter Vote Report » Home"Slumdog Millionaire," Kate Winslet, and...Twitter Vote Report? Yes, it just might be. The completely volunteer-driven election '08 vote reporting project that began as a mere seed of an idea on this humble blog has been nominated for a Golden Dot Award from the Institute of Politics, Democracy, & the Internet. We're competing in the "Best Animation or Mashup" category against JibJab's "Time for Some Campaignin'" video. Quite a broad category, but, hey, a nom's a nom. Didja know the dudes at JibJab regularly kick puppies and only recycle when people are looking? We're just saying. Voting is open to all, so make your preference (Vote Report) known (Vote Report).
