Shadow Election

I bumped on to the Show Election website on Facebook. I checked the Facebook page and then headed to the Kenyan sub-domain of the website. This is one great idea this time that Kenyans want to decide who should lead them.

The campaign to succeed President Kibaki is heated both online and offline with Kenyans online taking sides while others who are never good in getting down to vote, complaining about everything but taking no definite side.

The platform allows you to vote for you candidate through link. You then have the opportunity to invite up to 50 Facebook friends on to the page. The platform has not grown much and by the time of writing this article, Peter Kenneth is leading in votes. The virtual votes might not turn in to real votes but the platform is a great try.
