Website helps voters find their f*cking polling places

fucking
Maybe a healthy dose of profanity (and some useful information) is all it takes to get out the vote.

All signs point to the 2012 election being an extremely close race, one where the candidate who can manage to get the most people to the polls will be the winner.

That’s why one team of developers created a tool to shout people into voting on Election Day—profane language and all.

Go to Where’s My Fucking Polling Place to find out exactly where you need to be to vote on Tuesday. Simply input your “fucking address” and the search will bring up your polling location and the candidates on your local ballot. It’s all very charming:

“Look for your fucking polling place, again? I apparently have nothing better to do than help your ass all fucking day.”

The tool was a team effort developed by Twitter users @jungshadow, @gazamo, and @nickcatal. It was designed by @sixBcreative.

According to a comment from the project’s Twitter account, @fnpollingplace, the group first unveiled the tool last November in a panel at  DCWEEK (Digital Capital Week) 2011 in Washington, DC.

Based on that panel’s summary, the site received 36,000 Facebook likes and 250,000 views within 36 hours of its launch. Today, that’s grown to 67,000 likes.

The account reported that the team will be back this week for DC Week 2012 to talk about their continuing development work for Occupy Wall Street and, of course, their potty-mouthed program.

3 ways to brag online that you voted
There are plenty of reasons to vote: civic duty, desire to better your government, free sticker, get off work for a few hours on a Tuesday. But perhaps none are as compelling as the ability to use social media to brag to your friends that yes, you’re a good American—maybe better than they are.
