US State and Local Governments in Virtual Worlds

Below is a listing of US State and local governments that we know operate some sort of official presence in Second Life or some other 3-D virtual world. Know of a space we’re missing? Leave a comment or send an e-mail to Admin AT freegovinfo.info.

This is a listing by State. Click on the State name for a list by state agency and local jurisdiction (if available) For each site, we list the name of the space, a short description, a link to a regular URL page and if we have it, a link into the virtual world. Please note that at least in Second Life, the pointers (called SLurls) may get you close (like on the same island), but you won’t always be dropped right in front of the virtual government facility. It’s not our fault. Wander around, ask people who are there.
