LOS ANGELES, Calif. — While Republican presidential hopefuls are in Ames, Iowa this weekend shaking hands and jockeying for position among party faithful, two new technology tools are being offered to Iowa voters and political junkies. ElectionMall’s eTicketing software and text messaging (SMS) system are being provided through allowing supporters to purchase their tickets online to the Iowa Straw Poll and receive results on their cell phone.

Both of these technologies are firsts for the Ames Straw Poll, as voters continue to demand political organizations to keep up with technologies that increase their participation in the upcoming 2008 elections.

“Technology is impacting voters faster than expected and political parties are having trouble keeping pace,” said ElectionMall founder and CEO, Ravi Singh. “Even large political organizations need assistance implementing technology as they provide voters the ability to participate in Election 2008. Purchasing tickets for the Ames, Iowa Straw Poll is just as simple as buying tickets to a rock concert!”
