Va. Democrats and Republicans Buy Into Web Campaign Software
Representatives in Virginia's Democratic and Republican parties have purchased the an integrated campaign software package for use in this year's state elections.
The politicians are using Votenet, a campaign package from Netivation.com Inc. that enables a candidate to design and update a World Wide Web site without having to turn to hire a Webmaster.
The package provides online fund-raising and communication capabilities, free e-mail for candidates and staff, and campaign management software, said Tony Paquin, president and chief executive officer of the Post Falls, Idaho-based company (www.netivation.com).
Mark Warner, a contender for the Democratic nomination for Virginia Governor in 2001, purchased the Votenet package for the state's Democratic party and plans to make the software available to all state and local candidates.
State Delegate Jack Rust, who may run for speaker of the House in Virginia's next legislative session, acquired the program for the state's Republicans and said he will make it available to all candidates scheduled to run in state and local elections.
