Open Source Civics Cville, Beta Page

This is a beta page for the InfoBallot, a project of Open Source Civics Charlottesville

This page doesn't look like much; it's only purpose is to get the job done.

The job in this case is giving a default online home to the InfoBallot

What is an InfoBallot?

An InfoBallot is a copy of an official sample ballot to which helpful, non-partisan information has been added for the purposes of assisting a would-be voter.

How do I use an InfoBallot?

Simply mouse over the image and look for the circular tags.

Scroll over a tag and read the provided information!

If you have a program running in your browser that disables scripts, you will need to allow them in order to see the added content.

This is neat, how can I help spread the word?

I'm glad you asked!

You can share a link to the sample ballot via social media:

General link to page 1 of the ballot, that contains a link to page 2.

Using the direct links to the pages will give you thumbnails

Thumbnails aren't perfect, but some folks like images...
