More – Chooses Candidates For You, Sort Of

  • October 24, 2007

Connect2Elect.comDon’t know who to vote for in 2008? Let Connect2Elect decide for you. Well, sort of.

Connect2Elect provides a database of candidates and their attributes, along with the today’s most pressing social, political, and moral issues (as chosen by Connect2Elect). It matches you up with your ideal candidate by asking you to choose up to ten issues in each of these three categories. To do this, simply mouse over an issue for its complete description, and if it’s important enough to you, click on it and it will be automatically added to your profile list. For example, let’s say you want a candidate that has already served in Congress, opposes the Patriot Act, supports immigrant amnesty, and is bilingual. Choose each of these items in “Personal Attributes”, “Social Issues”, “Political Issues”, and “Core Beliefs”, respectively. Continue to do so until you’ve either exhausted your 10-item-per-category limit or until you’ve selected all the issues that are important to you. Connect2Elect will then generate a circular diagram of your results, with a pin representing you in the center. The diagram is then populated with colored pins (colors corresponding to party affiliation), whose proximity to your pin represents how close they stand to you on your selected issues. You can also choose to view your results in list form so you can see how the candidates rank against each other in accordance with your specifications.
