Use the Election Protection Smartphone App to Educate and Empower Voters

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. Americans – particularly young people and communities of color – are much more accustomed to receiving information via their mobile phones. This election cycle, it’s vital for voters to be able to access key information right in the palm of their hand. Organizers can use the Election Protection App to go out into the community to:

•    Verify voter registration;
•    Register people to vote;
•    Look up the polling place of their family and friends;
•    Educate voters about 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.
