[liberationtech] [cfabrigade] What "elections" News Challenge proposals excite you?

We just proposed a Politician Reconciliation Service that will act as a
canonical source of identifiers in order to enable others to research and
aggregate all the data ever created about a politician.

Pretty excited for DataMade to partner with Sunlight Foundation & Open
Elections on this one.
