Making Voting convenient

The roll of smart devices (phones, tablets etc) is growing, especially in how we interact with the world. Speaking to my friends, in the age group 20-26, the ones who didnt vote put it down to lack of convience.

The roll of smart devices (phones, tablets etc) is growing, especially in how we interact with the world. Speaking to my friends, in the age group 20-26, the ones who didnt vote put it down to lack of convience.

With improvements in encryptiong and authentication in applications an App could be produced that enabled people to vote at their own convience.

Potentially benefiting accessability for:
- People with physical diabilies, who struggle to make it to the voting centres, a viable alternative;
- Rural communities (i.e Africa) where banking is now done via mobile

Im sure someone is / has produced this- if any one knows of an example please detail

Hi James, interesting post! Any chance you could find an image to go along with it? Images help grab attention and tell a story with higher impact. You should be able to use the 'Update entry' button on the right of your post and follow the instructions to add images from there. We know occasionally people have issues uploading images so let us know at hello@openideo.com if you face any problems. Looking forward to seeing more of your inspiring ideas on OpenIDEO.
