Ah, election season. Welcome back. It feels like just yesterday we were discussing the various ways our beloved 2008 presidential contenders were getting hip to the Web and the ways in which the Web was changing the election and politics as a whole.
Some of that was true. Some of it was hyperbole. But it's certainly the case that the Web is very present in the 2012 election, serving as an asset (sometimes) to the politicians themselves, to developers who are leveraging the battle for the presidency to come up with various Web and mobile apps, and to the voters who have a wealth of information at their fingertips, digestible in various forms.
Below is a slideshow of 10 Tools for Following the 2012 Election. Some of these are fun, some are weird, and some may even be useful. (Can you believe it?) So please check out our series below, and let us know your thoughts on the boards.
