Voting Waiting Times Map

Twitter Vote Report
Twitter Vote Report is a website that has been set up so that voters can report about the experience of voting. Voters may experience voting problems such as long lines, broken machines or names not showing up on registration rolls. Twitter Vote Report wants to hear from them.

Using Twitter Vote Report voters will be able to share their experiences and resources with one another. These messages will then be aggregated and mapped so that voting problems around the country will be displayed in real-time.

Here's a video explaining how to report your voting experience:

Twitter Vote Report has a live Google Map showing the latest reports from all over the USA. State maps are also available which show voter reports for each individual state. To embed a state map in your own website then just use the code below:

<iframe src="http://votereport.us/reports/map?state=OH" frameborder="0" class="stream" width="535" height="500" scrolling="no" ></iframe>


Replace the OH with your two-character state code, or drop “state=xx” altogether for a national map.

Check Google Maps Mania tomorrow for a Live Embeddable Election Results Map.
