While voting via cellphone is still confined to contests with less geopolitical consequences, it looks like you'll at least be able to get results from the upcoming US mid-term elections from the convenience of your handset with the newly announced AP Mobile Election Results Service. Crisp Wireless is providing the tech with the info coming courtesy of the Associated Press, including state-by-state results for national races and ballot initiatives as well as political news and summaries of national trends. The service is apparently designed specifically for AP customers like newspapers and broadcasters, and is being offered as a "white-label" turn-key service for providers to market as they choose, though it doesn't seem like anything has been announced just yet. Somehow we wonder if it's powered by those totally awesome Diebold machines we've been hearing about.
