As mentioned in a previous post, the Provincial E-lection is likely to have a high volume of online content. Here is the minimum I expect from people soliciting my vote. A candidate website, with the obvious information – contact details, office location. 

Media content at the website – an introductory video, audio or video of major speeches or events

Some form of regular ‘report’ – could be a daily blog, twitter updates, or such

Opt-in communication – an email list, RSS feed, twitter feed that keeps folks updated on ways to participate. 

Finally a good way to provide feedback, forums are okay, online donation tool is good, but some form of two way communication that provides examples that it is used and followed up on.

Next: how my candidates stack up

  • Gmail. 5 years in beta and counting. #
  • RT @timescolonist: It’s snowing on Vancouver Island. No joke. And there will be more, says Environment Canada. http://ow.ly/1QT9 #

  • Looking for work kinda sucks -you never get used to the FOAD letters. #
  • A wet walk hpme #
