PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* announced today a new mobile application that provides free, on-the-go access to zip code specific voter registration and candidate information. It was designed to break down one of the most frequently cited barriers to voting – lack of readily accessible information.
Offered in both English and Spanish, VoterHub is a non-partisan, one-of-a-kind aggregator of nationwide voting instructions and information. It was developed by AT&T and Politics-360.
"Just in time for the November elections, VoterHub is a one-stop resource that puts voting information literally in the palm of your hand," said Adam Grzybicki, president of AT&T Oregon. "There are more than 285 million wireless customers nationwide. If we can put more voting information in their hands, we can increase voter participation in Oregon and across the nation."
"VoterHub combines technology and politics in a way that has never been done before. The app makes voting more convenient and easier by removing some of the confusion that inhibits some Americans from voting," said Grzybicki.
"We have to do a better job of engaging our young people," said Secretary of State Kate Brown. "One of my chief goals is to reduce any barriers that may prevent people from participating in the democratic process."
The app is available through the iTunes Store. Additionally, consumers with any mobile device with Internet functionality can use a web-based version of the app by visiting http://voterhub.us. Voting data was compiled from a number of sources, including secretaries of state, Raise Your Vote and VoteSmart.
