How has the Internet affected election campaigns?
Asked at Buford M. Watson Jr. Park on August 24, 2003
“I think positively. It’s a way to help candidates get their name out there without spending a lot of money. I used it when I ran for the school board last spring.”
“I think that a lot more information is available that we don’t read in the papers.”
“I hear the Dean campaign has been greatly influenced by that, but I personally have not used the Internet to do anything as far as political research or finding campaign information.”
“The advantage of the Internet is you can use it without an extra stamp or a long distance charge. So you can talk across the country instantly and without an extra charge.”
