Orange County Registrar of Voters Web Site Uses Caliper's Maptitude for the Web Software

NEWTON, MASSACHUSETTS (USA) - As part of its effort to provide pertinent and timely information to its voters, the Orange County (CA) Registrar of Voters has launched two web applications that use Caliper Corporations Maptitude for the Web technology. The Election Results Mapping System provides up-to-the-minute results on all races in the current election using a map interface that zooms to the voters precinct. The Who Are My Elected Officials? System lets the user enter their street address or precinct to obtain a complete list of all of their elected officials.

Neal Kelly, Orange County Registrar of Voters, says I am pleased to announce the launch of yet another service to our Election Night LIVE website. In the tradition of continual improvement and innovation we have developed, in conjunction with our map software vendor, Election Results Mapping. This new feature will allow users to click on a map of Orange County (down to specific precincts and even poll sites) and observe results for contests specific to the precincts they select. You can even print these maps from our website. Orange County is the first in the country to launch this service.

Daniel Weintraub of the Sacramento Bee writes, "For those of you who think transparency in elections is important, checking out the OC's website is time well-spent. They have clearly thought through various ways of using the Internet to allow interested people to watch and learn more about the election."
