Until now, absentee / remote voting meant election officials sent, in some cases, hundreds of thousands–even millions–of voting cards to past / potential absentee voters at great financial expense. For voters that are traveling, voting means having to disrupt a trip. For voters in the middle of a move, voting means having to remember to keep track of where mail is going. And with so much junk mail, many voters simply throw their ballots away, mistaking them for junk.
With such powerful technology at our fingertips, the solution for citizens to securely cast their votes electronically, regardless of where they were in the world, was sitting literally in the palm of our hands.
Now you can request an absentee ballot, and in some jurisdictions actually complete it, right from your own mobile phone or secure web browser.
Compatible with iOS and Android, Votem’s easy-to-use absentee balloting system is the easiest and safest way to cast your absentee or remote ballot.
Worldwide, Votem’s online voting app will allow eligible voters to
- Apply for electronic ballot access online via mobile devices and secure web browsers
