VII. Tech Thursday
National Tech: Voto Latino has launched an Android version of their VoterPal voter registration app. An Apple version of the app was launched back in March during SXSW.
Ohio: The Ohio Voter Information app is now available for Android and Apple products. The app can be customized to include personal voting information. Access to residence addresses currently on file, voting history, the status of your absentee ballot, polling place information and viewing of available sample ballots for upcoming elections will be included. It is also possible to update address information, if needed.
Oregon: This week, Jackson County, Oregon, became the ninth county in Oregon to employ Clear Ballot’s ClearVote voting system. “The efficiencies realized by Clear Ballot’s digital adjudication process are perfect for our vote by mail system” noted Jackson County Clerk Christine Walker. “Our ability to reduce or eliminate manual processes will result in significant cost savings for the County such that it will pay for itself in a few election cycles.”
