After an election ends, the election page has a section that looks something like this:

election results text

But what is this silliness about downloading some desktop app and installing it? It's 2013 and this is the internet; we can do better than this!

What we can do is point people at https://instantstv.appspot.com/. What we can do even better is to have a link that goes to https://instantstv.appspot.com/ with the relevant results passed along already.

This would, I suspect, increase the number of people who actually look at the election process dramatically. Thich would be a good thing.

edit to add:

Something like this appears to already be happening! These days, meta posts about election results now (perhaps only sometimes?) include something like this:

For details on how the voting played out, you can download the election results here, or view a summary report online.

That latter link is to OpaVote, which provides exactly what I'm after.

Could we have a link from the election page to OpaVote please?
