The Voter Hub app is no longer working. It will not retrieve any info for the 2014 Mid-Term elections!

The Voting Info section crashes the application. The Find Polling Place section cannot find my polling location even though it is static. While the Find Candidates section has the candidates, their information is lacking. The Ballot Info and Voter Card sections are great!

very well done, timely, relevant and showcases the power of open government data, windows 8 and amazing user experience.

Whenever I click on ballot info, I get the message "Unable to retrieve ballot measures from the network". The voter card section doesn't work either. These were the main things I wanted out of this app and they don't work. Using the Surface RT.

There was an error submitting the registration. DOBYear Invalid parameter type. This was for King county (Seattle WA).

No matter what I do, it tells me the "DOB year is an invalid parameter type". Fine for information I guess, but not for anything else.

This provides a great overview of the candidates, but it doesn't provide much in depth information on the yes votes or the different ratings by the groups. It also doesn't provide information on what the groups are. All in all, good for basic info, not for in depth info

App is a great review of facts about national, stat and local candidates, like their voting record, for voting and an awesome primer on elections and various issues, like employment rates. It also provides local voting information like location. Although it is missing descriptions for laws passed by candidates, it has just about anything else you would need to make an informed decision!
