You know almost every country including the united states doesn’t have a proper electoral list. While in Pakistan NADRA is trying to bid a electoral count of registered Pakistani’s, the US government is using technology and social media to take an accurate count of voters and do political campaigns fro its citizens.
NationBuilde, the company which puts behind the technology and social media muscle behind political campaigns, has launched NationBuilder Election Center – a free nationwide voter file that also includes an API designed for developers. It’s available for political use by everyone and anyone.Campaigns without heaps of money or party endorsements can access it. Voters can claim their records and express their contact preferences. Developers can build applications to engage more people in the political process. And the data will become more and more accurate over time.
The good sense of this is that What if voter data, the building block for democracy, was freely available for campaigns to win elections, voters to manage their own privacy, and developers to build beautiful applications? Now it is with Nation Builder
