Innovative Technology Acknowledged for New Way to Pick a President
WASHINGTON, D.C., JANUARY 26, 2012 - AmericansElect.org has been selected as a 2012 Interactive Awards Finalist in the experimental category by South by Southwest (SXSW), the annual music, film, and interactive conference and festival held in Austin, Texas. Americans Elect is on the cutting edge of political reform - changing the way we nominate a President of the United States, and also emerging as one of the best new websites in the marketplace today.
“Americans Elect uniquely offers everyone an online way to participate, regardless of party affiliation, in political discussion and debate, and results in a balanced ticket that is on the ballot nationwide,” said Joshua S. Levine, Chief Technology Officer of Americans Elect....
The SXSW Interactive festival takes place March 9-13, 2012, featuring presentations showcasing the best new websites, video games and startup ideas.
