Mobile Voting

(originally posted November 4th, 2005)

Here's an interesting website about mobile voting and voter registration. Thus far, mobile technology has only been used in a rudimetiary way by North American politicians and governments, but the city of San Francisco has launched a campaign for mobile voter registration. The campaign, largely geared towards youth, is being advertised on billboards, on taxis and at concerts. Voters who register through SMS (using a short code) will also be sent a text message on election day, reminding them to vote.
