Tech Moves: Obama's "Director of Voter Experience" is Moving On
BY Nick Judd | Friday, May 4 2012
Here's a dispatch from political-tech land: Anthea Watson Strong, a member of Obama for America's tech team, is moving on. Her last day is today and she's saying her goodbyes on Twitter.
Watson Strong, who you might remember as the left-leaning half of the crosspartisan team that stewarded the Voting Information Project during 2010, is moving on to work with Google as an independent consultant to do work around the election. While working on VIP, a project to collect and provide easy programmatic access to information about elections like polling places and ballot information, she was at the New Organizing Institute; prior to that, she worked as a lawyer in the House of Representatives.
