About

MSPVotes is creating candidate profiles, and detailed campaign information for Minneapolis/St. Paul local elections. We're also turning crappy faxed and rescanned PDFs into machine-readable campaign finance data, and identifying donors when candidates choose to leave them out. Donor categorization is an immensely important journalistic tool to understand elections, and this is work no one else in the MSP-area is doing.

Voter turnout is important, and can be improved by having quality information available on a mobile device.

The coding, development work and a large chunk of data collection is carried out by one person, with some help from some local political gurus (of @WedgeLIVE fame). Chipping in a few bucks will help cover server costs, and perhaps even buy a coffee here and there to support new features, data entry, business planning, and more.

With this goal I realize how many people care, and start cooking up even crazier ideas.
