It's a great demonstration of Jott technology and a simple and needed way of bringing millions of people into the 2008 Presidential election conversation.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) October 17, 2007
Jott Networks (http://www.jott.com), a free voice-to-text service launched "Jott the Vote™" today, a new way for any American with a cell phone to connect to their 2008 Presidential candidate of choice. For the first time in history the voices of Americans will literally be "seen and heard" by the candidates.
"Every day Jott.com helps thousands of people remember and communicate ideas. They create emails, text messages, notes and reminders using simply their voices. Our Jott the Vote™ project will use the same technology to let people connect directly with the candidates in a way never offered before," said John Pollard, CEO of Jott Networks. "We believe everyone's voice should have the power to be seen and heard."
The recent YouTube debate on CNN proved that new technologies are radically altering the nature of campaigns. With Jott the Vote™, peoples' opinions can be seen and heard without the need for video production or technical expertise. Once a person "jotts" a candidate, their message will be sent to the candidate's e-mail and appear on the Jott The Vote™ website (http://www.jottthevote.com). Conversely, Jott enables campaigns to automatically "reply" to a Jott from an individual with a key message of the week or a live update from the campaign trail.
"We're eager for the American public and the Presidential candidates to participate in Jott The Vote™," said Pollard. "It's a great demonstration of Jott technology and a simple and needed way of bringing millions of people into the 2008 Presidential election conversation."
