Voting is important to make the voice of the people as loud as possible.

But, it is also very complicated to remember all of the involved dates, so much so that you are almost certain to miss a registration date.

To try to make it easier for us with forgetful minds, a community driven effort has been gathering all of the hard to find information and dates, and compiling it on the Electioncal Website.

It's designed to share this information as an iCalendar url, which is super easy to add to your favorite desktop software or to your mobile phone.

But sometimes we need a little visual reminder, and a beautiful way to do it, is with a PyPortal.

We are going to use CircuitPython to connect to the Internet, download and process the data, and then display it in a nice and clean way, so we can always keep the pulse on our Election Calendar.
