Elections and Computer Technology

Computers have become indispensable in modern election campaigns.
Maurice Green has been involved in a number of local elections in support of grass-roots initiatives and local candidates. He will demonstrate and discuss some of the uses of computer technology in election campaigns, including:
- Use of computer databases, voter rolls and voter histories to identify likely supporters
- User demographics for targeting social media advertising
- Computer mapping for campaign organization
