iPhone Web Apps for Monitoring the 2008 US Presidental Election

Tomorrow is the big day and we thought we’d help you get the best coverage of the US Presidential Elections of 2008 on your iPhone or iPod Touch. There are some kewl Apps in the app store but most are just poll tracking and not final results or news. I’ve looked over the top news sites and found only one with an entire site dedicated to the election coverage. CNN has, by far, the best web app for the election called the CNN Election Center. You can even put in your zip code and get local results of your state candidates running for state positions.

CNN’s site details the Presidential Election with a total percent of precincts reporting stat, number of electoral votes and total percentages for both candidates, a link to a Google web app that helps you find where to vote locally, and even videos. I’ve also listed a bunch of other news sites that are adapted for the iPhone, iPod Touch and other mobile devices. From your iPhone, you can click on them in this article and you will go right to them. Most have nice webclip icons. If you know of any other web apps covering the election, please let us know. Especially from countries other than the US.
