New mobile app allows voters to check voting status and procedure

Related Posts

Registered voters in Alameda County now have access to a new mobile phone application designed to educate voters about voting procedure.

The Mobile Voter Profile App is provided by the Alameda County Registrar of Voters and gives residents access to key aspects of their voting status. Voters can now quickly find out in which county they are registered to vote as well as their designated polling location by looking up an individual’s “Voter Profile” — a feature the Alameda county made available online earlier this year.

The profile also clarifies to voters their preferred medium for voting, be it by mail or in person, as well as the status of their vote-by-mail ballot. Voters can also download their sample ballots online by simply typing in their names and dates of birth.

This app is available in five languages: English, Chinese, Spanish, Tagalog and Vietnamese. The mobile app can be downloaded for iPhone or for free from the iTunes App Store.
