Retro Portfolio: MDelegate

Note: O6 Web Services is not affiliated with, nor does it endorse any political party or entity.

The MDelegate site was built in the lead up to the 2010 Michigan Gubernatorial election. It was part of a Republican grass-roots effort to share information and reach out to voters.

The basic site design was provided by the client, with O6 cleaning it up and fitting in content areas that hadn’t been accounted for.

The home page was centered around news distribution, with headlines pulled in from RSS feeds displayed and a space for posting news video hosted on YouTube.

In addition to static content pages, there was also a password-protected section where site users could see information about other users near them, including an events calendar, a map of their precinct, and other shared files. Users could submit their own events to the calendar through a form.

An administration system was built to allow the site owners to manage the dynamic elements of the site. Tools for managing users, moderating the event calendar, and adding/removing news feeds were part of the administration system.
