AT&T Gets Political with VoterHub App

AT&T is doing its part to support the civic responsibility of voting.

Ahead of the weekend, AT&T and the Pew Center on the States and Politics-360 teased the debut of what’s being called VoterHub.

As you might expect, VoterHub is a smartphone application designed to serve as a “nonpartisan clearinghouse” for essential voter information.

The app comes just one month to the date of the 2012 presidential election.

The VoterHub app provides voters with national and statewide candidate information, and also provides a platform for voters to connect and share with one another.

In particular, there’s voter registration information, voter specific polling place information, sample ballots, access to Associated Press real-time election coverage, videos, candidate and local ballot initiative information, and election results. VoterHub also allows the user to set up alert reminders and notifications for key dates and results.

In addition, the app allows users to share content easily through several different social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Foursquare, and email.

“Voting is an important civic duty for each one of us,” says Tracy King, Vice President of Public Affairs for AT&T. “This is why we are thrilled to launch VoterHub which brings together all of the critical information voters need in one easy-to-use app. VoterHub aims to educate voters and encourage Americans to have their voices heard by voting in the upcoming election.”
