Gongwer News Service today announced the availability of a new mobile app that provides easy-to-use information and analysis of the 2016 election.
The app will offer exclusive Gongwer analysis of all races in the Ohio General Assembly, the state’s U.S. House seats, the U.S. Senate campaign and the presidential race.
The app gives users on-the-go access to detailed candidate biographical information, with options to review primary races and then general election campaigns once those races take shape.
Users can also see which U.S. House, Ohio Senate and Ohio House races are expected to be the most competitive and the seats where districts lean toward one party or another.
On each candidate’s page, users will see links to the candidate’s social media accounts, district maps, campaign websites, and biographical information. If that candidate has run for state or federal office from 2004 onward, the app also displays his or her performance in those elections.
Users also can use the Key Races function to focus only on the primaries and general election match-ups that are highly competitive or of significant interest.
New in the 2016 app is a push messaging feature that will be used to alert users when candidate information and biographies have been updated. The push system will also be used to distribute periodic news items.
Also new this year is a search function that allows users to more easily find candidates. The app also provides overall analysis of the race for control of the Ohio House and Ohio Senate.
The app’s content is updated regularly, and additional candidates, information and analyses will be added before and after the Dec. 16 filing deadline.
Candidates displaying on the app prior to the filing deadline appear based on news reports, announcements and other sources.
