Democracy Live launched its LiveBallot app and website Thursday to provide American voters with online access to their ballot ahead of Election Day. The LiveBallot social-balloting technology can offer every registered U.S. voter a digital replica of the ballot they’ll see at the polls, plus candidate bios, contact information and links to recent news articles about them. The information can be shared on social media. “LiveBallot is the only app that delivers a customized ballot to each of the 200 million voters in the U.S.,” Democracy Live President and CEO Bryan Finney said in an interview. “For the first time in election history, voters will have a virtual replica of their ballots on their personal devices, computers and in their hands ahead of Election Day.”
The app and website are updated in real time and include information about the candidates’ experience, endorsements and funding, as well as a voter’s state and local ballot measures and polling place information.
… Democracy Live was founded in Seattle in 2007 and has been funded in part by the U.S. Department of Defense, Intel and Microsoft.
