on the premise that many Canadians support a particular party but may live in
condos or apartments without lawn space, the digital lawn signs allow voters
to show off their candidate in cyberspace with the look of a real election
lawn sign. Undecided voters can download a 'Make Your Mark, October 14th'
digital lawn sign to encourage friends, coworkers and anyone they contact
through email, Facebook or Twitter to help elect Canada's next Prime Minister.
