Android Apps for Election Day 2012

Nov 6, 2012

Today is a big day in American politics, when not just the president will be potentially decided, but also many Senators, the House of Representatives, and many local elections as well. There’s various resources for following the election and knowing how to vote today. Election Protection offers FAQs on voting, such as what a state’s laws are for what is needed to vote, and what ID may be necessary, and can provide polling place information for registered voters. When that’s done, the Election 2012 app from the New York Times offers news articles, editorials, and multimedia surrounding the election. As well, there’s an election guide letting users see what would happen based on various swing state scenarios. It’s a handy way to keep up on election news without going through the main app, though stories about the election will be crowding the headlines!

Finally, waiting to vote can take a while. Check out our recent reviews to find games and other useful apps to pass the time while waiting. Because no matter what happens, we can all agree that waiting is more fun when killing zombies.
