Ayo Vote [1] is a useful website to monitor the 2014 election campaign in Indonesia. Sidarta Danang Kristianto hopes for better information [2] about election parties and candidates:

… the government has created a website where voters can access information on each of the candidates, including a full biography. While the site is a great resource and will undoubtedly help many Indonesians to make their decisions, it seems something of an attempt to paper over the cracks in Indonesian democracy. Why are our future leaders and representatives presented to us in the same way we pick items on online shopping website?
