If you want this country to change come November 6, these are the apps you’ll need.
It’s all come down to this. Today is Election Day, and your vote is going to help determine the United States’s destiny over the next four years. This is one of the most important elections in years, and that means it’s more important than ever for you to stay organized with supporters around you and live on the cutting edge to keep up-to-date with all the latest Election News.

The most important thing I learned while watching the Republican National Convention last night, is this: Don’t let Paul Ryan use your iPod, ever! Because he will totally make fun of your music library at the biggest political rally of the year. Even if you’re his running mate for el Presidente.
During his speech last night, Paul Ryan mentioned how he and Governor Mitt Romney are a full generation apart. To expound on their age difference, Ryan took a few digs at Romney’s iPod, while boasting about his own. Check out the video below to hear Ryan’s diss (it starts at the 12:54 mark)
The 2012 U.S. presidential election is only months away. Leading up to election day, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney will continue debating one another and fervently addressing the “issues’ in passionate speeches and ad spots.
Obama and Romney go head-to-head in a new iOS game developed by the makers of Infinity Blade, and well, you get the idea.
The times sure are a-changin’, and we’re now in an age where political leaders are announcing running mates via mobile apps. Much like Barack Obama’s decision to announce VP running mate Joe Biden via text message, Mitt Romney has decided to announce his VP via a mobile app entitled “Mitt’s VP.”
Matt Rimney’s campaign has released an official photo app with a text template that reads “A Better Amercia.” Ooops.
The app comes with a bunch of text overlays (the others, you’ll be pleased to hear, with correct spellings throughout) that you can add to photos of – well, anything you consider suitably Republican and Presidential. I’m sure you’ll come up with something.
It’s not even a very good app. The image you line up in your viewfinder gets shifted down considerably when the overlay is applied, so don’t bother with careful composition.
Some voters in Florida’s Republican primary elections will be choosing the man they want in the White House with the touch of a finger using iPads.
Although Lori Steele, Chairman & CEO of Everyone Counts, the company behind the iPad voting scheme, was tight-lipped on details about how many of Apple’s magical tablets will be ticking boxes in today’s elections, she was quick to say that a similar program in Oregon led to an increase of voter participation by 1,500%.
One thing she’s certain of though: the iPads will ensure there’s no hanging chads or lost votes.
Cult of Mac asked her about the cost, security and software behind it. We’re planning to follow up on how the battle between Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich played out over touchscreens.
