Jersey brought this site to my attention. I haven't had a chance to explore it yet, but it seems to be a "vote-trading" arrangement, so that we poor, benighted souls in liberal Austin who will pointlessly vote democratic can transfer our votes to a swing-state, in exchange trading our vote for a 3rd party cantidate vote, so that the 3rd-party gets a popular voice while cosimultaneously the Nader-oriented voter can worry less about his valuable swing-vote taking away from Kerry, Bush, or whichever he values second to Nader. It's a bit of trust which I'm a little reluctant to put into my fellow human being's hands, but if everybody's on the up-and-up, it seems like a nice arrangement.


Anyway, I'll be exploring this idea a bit when I get home this evening.
