Technology can change the world with Presidential Election 2008. Campaign technology has become a serious vertical market in democracies around the world. ElectionMall expands to global markets with presidential tools as seen in the McCain and Obama campaigns.

I understand what mattered to our founding fathers, even at a young age

American-born Ravi Singh has always believed in democracy. After running for office in 1997 and losing, Singh's focus turned to democratizing the campaign process. He founded a company that would provide all candidates a website, the ability to raise money online, and to promote their message; all for free. These tools allow candidates who are not rich and powerfully connected to have a fair chance. True to its founding, ElectionMall has developed presidential tools for any sized campaign. By following the principles of democracy over capitalism, ElectionMall offers campaigns a win-win formula; the company takes only a percentage raised and with a scalable platform, can allow campaigns to grow organically. Countries following the presidential nomination process are taking notice.

ElectionMall has traveled throughout Europe, Asia, and South America and is now poised to open offices in Singapore, New Delhi, and Bogota,Columbia. A Belgium office in conjunction with the European Union is also in the works. "Campaign technology has become a serious vertical market in democracies around the world," explains Singh. "Technology alone cannot win a campaign but its use can seriously impact the electoral race. The McCain and Obama campaigns have bravely illustrated the impact of this technology. Other global democracies are looking for a similar effect."

What ElectionMall calls their "Politics On-Demand" is a fast, easy to use, scalable, and affordable platform that gives equal footing to all campaigns. Software as a service (SaaS) dovetails with campaign behavior and is the architecture behind ElectionMall's products and services. ElectionMall's soon to be released "My Campaign Box" is in that same vein; offering distinct bundles of services and products based on the candidate's category of office.

ElectionMall was originally funded by Microsoft Technology executive, George Spix who shared Singh's vision. Singh often talks about his experience as a teenager in a U.S. Military Academy, graduating as a second lieutenant. "I understand what mattered to our founding fathers, even at a young age," he explains. "Democracy is based on ensuring freedom -- speech, religion, equality; not just for Americans, but for everyone. Keeping candidates accountable to the democratic process is how our world is changing. I believe that ElectionMall is empowering democracy throughout the world and that is what gets me up in the morning."
