red | blue


red | blue (pronounced 'red or blue') is a free Java™ app for your mobile device that figures out where you stand, or perhaps more accurately, where you are standing in our politically polarized country.


By taking your current location, and finding the nearest individual donors of campaign funds from the publicly available data from the Federal Elections Commission, red | blue is able to provide you an accurate reading of the political leanings of your surroundings -- red for Republican or blue for Democrat.
