.com graded the website of each candidate for governor in 2010 for a multipart series on campaign web communications. We looked at how sites performed in five specific ways: • • • • • Design — is the site inviting, user friendly and current-looking? Calls To Action — how actively does the site promote opportunities for supporters to donate, volunteer, etc.? Social Media — how well does the homepage incorporate and promote the candidate's other online presences?; Platform & Bio — how thorough and accessible is the candidate's personal information? Engagement — how well does the site integrate a campaign blog, press releases, news, Twitter, recent and upcoming events so that visitors can stay up-to-date?

These five categories were graded individually using a modified three-point scale (A-C, with a few outliers), then weighted equally and averaged to determine the overall rating. [Please visit OhMyGov.com for more on our series: the Best Sites, the Worst Sites, and Trends.] Because this is an electoral campaign, not a school project, and citizens are supposed to be energized and inspired by these websites, we needed our overall ratings to be more than a mere letter grade. Thus, our governor hopefuls earned either an "Oh" (for overall mundane, mediocre or sloppy site) to "OhMy" (solid, with a few flourishes) to "OhMyGov" (everything we could ask for). A few standouts were awarded a bonus exclamation point. Share your thoughts on the candidates websites and our rankings at http://OhMyGov.com/
