Of course we in the colonies over here are totally non-partisan about all this, but Red/Blue struck me as a rather funky application of GPS mobile tech. Vote geek!

‘red | blue (pronounced ‘red or blue’) is a free Java app that figures out where you stand, or perhaps more accurately, where you are standing in our politically polarized country…By taking your current location, and finding the nearest individual donors of campaign funds from the publicly available data from the Federal Elections Commission, red | blue is able to provide you an accurate reading of the political leanings of your surroundings — red for Republican or blue for Democrat…Then, like a magical greenback Geiger counter, red | blue will tell you if you’re in Republican or Democratic territory, and will also show you the total amount of contributions for Republicans or Democrats in your area.’
