AT&T and the Pew Center on the States and Politics-360 announced the 2012 debut of VoterHub, a smartphone application designed to serve as a nonpartisan clearinghouse for essential voter information for the upcoming November 2012 General Election. The VoterHub app provides voters with national and statewide candidate information, and also provides a platform for voters to connect and share with one another.
The smartphone app hosts many additional features such as: voter registration information, voter specific polling place information, sample ballots, access to Associated Press real-time election coverage, videos, candidate and local ballot initiative information, and election results. VoterHub also allows the user to set up alert reminders and notifications for key dates and results.
In addition, the app allows users to share content easily through several different social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Foursquare, and email.
VoterHub uses information from a variety of national organizations to inform voters and encourage them to take part in the November election. The Voting Information Project—a joint effort of state and local officials, the Pew Center on the States, Google Inc., AT&T and Microsoft Inc.— provides the VoterHub app with critical and official information for voters including state-specific voter ID laws, national and local candidate information, and details on local ballot initiatives. Other sources VoterHub uses include Rock the Vote, Turbo Vote, Google Election Center, official state election websites, Vote Smart, and Pollster.
The VoterHub app is available today for Android and Windows Mobile users in their app stores, and will be available in the Apple app store soon. The mobile web app is available on any mobile device with a browser at http://voterhub.us.
