Brilliant voting campaign aimed to push the public to go vote. This marketing campaign was created by Borders Perrin Norrander and Pollinate Media.

Do you know what contextual advertising is? Advertising companies take websites and divide up their pages into themes. It does this by reading the content on the page and assigning a particular context. Then advertisers can then choose particular themes to target depending on their business needs.
