On Monday, the Philly311 Mobile App sent out a push notification to remind users to vote. This is just one of the ways the app can be helpful this Election Day.
Philly311’s Election Day widget, released yesterday morning, is a perfect pocket resource for voter participation. The widget’s homepage shows voting hours, information for first-time voters, and a phone number for the Voter Registration Division (215-686-1590).
In the “Where to Vote” section, users can enter their address and find out where they are registered to vote:
The widget also includes this Election Day’s ballot, complete with candidates, running mates, parties, and ballot questions:
While the widget was automatically updated, existing users may have to refresh their app for the widget to appear. (To refresh the Philly311 Mobile App, hold your finger on of the app’s home screen, pull down, and release.)
A big thank you goes out to the City employees and agencies who worked to get the app released in time for Election Day. The Philly311 Mobile App is free for all iPhone, Android, and Blackberry devices. Click here to download and go vote!
