I had a fun idea last weekend and spent a few hours coding up what is now YardVote.com.
Walking around my very conservative town, I noticed a ton of Obama yard signs, and hardly any McCain signs. I had this conversation with a number of people before deciding to plot them on a map.
This is a big playground for me, so I’m going to be adding fun features and see where it goes. I don’t really have an agenda though. I was just curious what would happen. So far, a number of people have started logging signs as they drive home from work or bike. I want it to be more than just Holland, MI and I have some fun mapping features in the works for when the data gets unwieldy.
Check it out and tell me what you think. Oh, and the source is on GitHub so fork away!
