Pulled my nexus 7 out of my gym bag and opened the cover to find the screen festooned with a thick spiderweb of cracks. The screen lights up with no flaws in the image, but the touch response is gone. I can’t even acknowledge the “OK” to power it off.

A quick search indicates that there isn’t really a cost-effective way to repair it; has anyone used an old 8G model as a source of spare parts?

(In particular, there might be good reasons why larger precincts favor a particular candidate — smaller -> rural, larger -> urban.)
