In the UK election this year there were helpful gadgets to guide your vote. From The Telegraph newspaper online there was this tool which defined where you might want to cast your ballot based on answers to questions. It was a bit alarming as it suggested I would be 91% behind the BNP! Also there was a Facebook newsfeed topper that asked you to click if you had voted on the day - presumably for research but also for encouraging participation. This was run by their DemocracyUK page.
