Sacramento County’s SacVote Mobile Application
I admit, there are times when I wish it was a little simpler to use my smart phone to just make a phone call. But for every time I struggle to find my way back to the keyboard, there are at least five times when I am thankful for this app, or that function that makes my life easier. What was the name of that restaurant again? Is it on 9th or 10th street? Where is the nearest gas station? Smart phones are supposed to make our lives easier with that type of information at our fingertips, and now thanks to the Sacramento County Registrar of Voters, your smart phone can even make it easier for you to participate as a voter!
Sacramento County Registrar of Voters Jill LaVine challenged her staff to develop a mobile app for voters. But her I-T staff had never developed an app before. They took some classes on their own time, learned some new skills and began putting them to use. The result is the SacVote App for IPhones and Androids.
