MyVote is a smartphone application concept designed to enable mobile voting from anywhere in the world.
MyVote provides four key benefits to how we vote in America today.
Flexibility – MyVote will allow citizens to participate in elections from anywhere in the world. They may vote at their convenience and take as much time as they need.
Integration – To meet the needs of everyone, multiple voting options will always be required. MyVote will join the elections ecosystem as one voting option among several.
Retention – MyVote will provide easy access to the voting system which will increase voter participation. The convenience of the service will increase return voters and even promote participation in less popular votes.
Extension – MyVote will open new opportunities for other service and experience innovations around voting in the digital/technology, mobile, and social spaces.
Tenets serve as guiding principles and validate design choices made along the way.
Simplicity – The application should be easy to use. The experience should be limited to the core features designed for the purpose of voting and refrain from unnecessary bloating.
Transparency – The application should communicate effectively and efficiently. The design should help guide users in understanding where they are, what they are doing, and where they are going.
Accessibility – The design should adhere to accessibility and usability standards.
Privacy – The application should enable a private registration and voting experience. The design should provide appropriate information and control of stored and shared data on the device as well as within the system.
Security – The application should be fully secure not only for the individual registrant but for the overall voting system.
