Voting? There's an app for that!
Introducing The Election Protection Smartphone App from 866OurVote.org
When it comes to registering and voting, having the right information can often mean the difference between casting a ballot and being left out of the process. In order to meet the needs of the Digital Age, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, National Association of Latino Appointed and Elected Officials Education Fund, New Organizing Institute, Rock the Vote, and Verified Voting Foundation have joined forces to deploy the Election Protection Smartphone Application to provide all information and resources, in English and Spanish, that voters need to fully participate in the 2012 elections.
The Election Protection App is now available for all Smartphones and provides the information and resources voters need to register and cast a meaningful ballot in the palm of their hands. The App allows voters to:
• Verify their registration;
• Register to vote;
• Look up their polling place;
• Review key voting rules and regulations for their state;
• See what type of machine they vote on; and
• Contact Election Protection via phone or email to report a problem or get answers to their questions.
