ComoVotar.com
ComoVotar.com (How to Vote in spanish) is an interactive website that simulates the entire electronic voting process in Venezuela; it has been used by over one million venezuelans.
VotoJoven Simulator
For the 2010 parliamentary elections in Venezuela, I developed an interactive website for helping people to understand the complex election process it was about to take place. It was visited by more than 220.000 people the week before the elections. This was the previous work for ComoVotar.com
