When we started this eight years ago, we spent a lot of time explaining to candidates why this technology is important for their campaign. Now we have campaigns asking us not why, but how they can get started. They now understand that they need this technology to raise funds and mobilize grassroots in order to have a chance of winning
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) September 4, 2008
Back in 2000, the Republican National Convention embraced an innovative technology brought to them by ElectionMall's eYardsigns. Now eight years later, the RNC is playing catch up. Back then, it was new and interesting. Now it is required by all candidates, even incumbents to run for office. eYardsigns and VoterSpace enables anyone to get involved in the business of campaigning, whether they are part of a campaign or not. With this easy to use web-based technology, voters pick and choose their favorite slogan and turn it into a virtual yard sign or a simple greeting card - an interactive way to participate in democracy and the way candidates are now getting elected.
ElectionMall's brain child, VoterSpace.com, is being introduced to the RNC with former American Idol contestant, Antonella Barba, as its spokesperson. Building on this same technology, VoterSpace is the single location where voters can circulate widgets for favorite candidates and send their own "eYardsign" or electronic messages via the web. ElectionMall, a pioneer in the campaign industry since 2000, is showcasing their VoterSpace concept at their 3rd Republican National Convention. VoterSpace makes it possible for hundreds of candidates to have a web presence in minutes and is the one place in virtual space where candidates and voters can find and interact with each other.
Who better to introduce VoterSpace than Barba, whose popularity won her more votes than most politicians? Voters can register to vote, donate, volunteer, interact with candidates and send on-demand print cards to friends and supporters via this website and through U.S. Post, delivered within three days. These new ways to participate can be viewed on the Arizona GOP website, http://www.azgop.org , created by ElectionMall.com.
The marketing site, http://antonella.voterspace.com introduces voters of all ages to the latest technology for both campaigns and voters. "When we started this eight years ago, we spent a lot of time explaining to candidates why this technology is important for their campaign. Now we have campaigns asking us not why, but how they can get started. They now understand that they need this technology to raise funds and mobilize grassroots in order to have a chance of winning," comments Ravi Singh, CEO and founder of ElectionMall.com.
"We understand that the Internet can empower certain campaign behaviors, and on-demand technology allows us to be creative and increase participation, even by direct mail. Why send thousands of cards when one card from your friend or family member can be more impacting and powerful?" explains Barba.
In the 2008 election cycle's rise of the social networking sites, ElectionMall.com provides everyday campaigns with the technology used by presidential campaigns, giving them access to millions of voters previously out of reach.
