After the Razglasaj 2010 campaign was formally promoted on Wednesday with its main components, the Glasometar (Vote-o-meter) application was presented on Thursday in Sarajevo for those who do not use internet at a checkpoint in front of the Cathedral.
Glasometar for the first time offers the public in BiH a simple questionnaire, short version (30 questions) long version (48 questions) which gives individual users insight into congruence between their own political social views and those of political parties, which previously answered the same questionnaire questionnaires in order to compare individual political preferences with those of political parties. The Razglasaj 2010 campaign enables the public to via the Razglasaj.ba gain information related to elections, participating parties and other participants in the election process. (Razglasaj.ba)
