 I live in Texas.  I want to vote for a Hispanic (for Senate).  Either Ted Cruz - raised by Cubans or Beto O'Rourke - raised in El Paso would do.  The President says my decision tree is flawed - both candidates have the "Hispanic" Property. I had two choices now I have zero. Thanks.

Yet, Ted Cruz has run a stereo-typical Donor-Centric Campaign which ends when the polls close tomorrow night.  Beto O'Rourke has run a "1000 Points of Light" Campaign which is reusable.
One can "map" either campaign strategy, but only the 1000 Points of Light mapping yields a reproducible (reusable) view.  As for the 117,378 Exempt Organizations in the "Texas" group the Contact Information is available for free from the IRS.  Or you could pay me a small fortune (before the polls close tomorrow).

I think that there is something to Web-based and desktop-based information dashboards and decision support systems for voters. Such decision support systems could aggregate election news articles and provide data visualization with respect to local, state and national elections.


I recently started some discussions about a new contest pertaining to the design of voter decision support systems. I indicated that there should be a well-publicized and periodic, e.g. annual, contest of designs and design concepts. I indicated that we would want to facilitate the best new designs and design concepts with advancements to Web standards including news article metadata and schema.


We could also facilitate the best new ideas with advancements to open government data, with advancements to data.gov .



Best regards,

Adam Sobieski
