At the invitation
of the Annenberg School of Journalism, Smart Voter is participating
in Democracy Row at the Democratic National Convention in
Los Angeles. Over fifty nonpartisan and mostly non-profit
organizations are staffing booths to highlight the importance
of voter information and education. Smart Voter volunteers
visited with Norman Lear who stopped by the booth to see
Smart Voter's unique ballot lookup demonstrated on laptops.
At the same time, the Online Journalism Review at the Annenberg
School is producing live webcasts. Their cameras are stationed
at Democracy Row where they will spotlight the nonpartisan
participants. The live webcast began Monday and will continue
through Thursday starting at 1.00 p.m. each day. Check it
out by linking to the webcast through <http://www.ojr.org>.
You might even see a reporter interview Smart Voter volunteers!
