MiniVAN App Computes On The Campaign Trail

App Provides Names, Gender, Addresses Of Registered Voters

New technologies are landing themselves onto the 2016 campaign trail.

Mark-John Kruse, of Duluth, has been canvassing for Sen. Bernie Sanders using the app MiniVAN.

The app simply requires a precinct number — and then MiniVAN takes it from there. 

“It uploads all the registered voters in the area, and I can pick out their name, address, gender,” Kruse said. 

Kruse says the app is fantastic for organization and getting all volunteers on the same page.

But Kruse admits it is entertaining from time to time when he shows up at homes, and people are surprised he knows their names.
