Special thanks to Corie Tanida of Common Cause Hawaii who coordinated a great group of volunteers - Christine Trecker, Connie Clinton, Dustin Schoedel, Jeanne Ohta and Joe Heaukulani. They all spent many hours doing the candidate research that made the Power Ballot possible.


The amazing web development skills of Jason Axelson were critical for pulling in candidate data from the REST service and smoothing the rough edges of my initial prototype.
