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. “It is an honor to be recognized for our effort to reform the political process with American technology and innovation, at a time when our country is in desperate need of reform. If we can start to change the way we elect our officials, we can change the way they govern, and that to me is real reform.”
The country is demanding a third option – 66 percent of American voters believe it is important for an independent to run for president in 2012 – and Americans Elect is offering that third option. At Americans Elect, every voter’s voice is heard regardless of party affiliation. All registered voters are encouraged to sign up at AmericansElect.org to debate the issues, develop the Platform of Questions and select a candidate of their choice.
The SXSW Interactive festival takes place March 9-13, 2012, featuring presentations showcasing the best new websites, video games and startup ideas.
