Virginia elections fight voter suppression with affordable technology and user interface design

There's a LOT at stake in the upcoming Virginia election.

Virginians deserve to know how the election will make their lives better or worse, and make an informed choice? What will Democrats and Republicans do if elected? Who's running for office? Where are the early voting locations? When are they open? What ID will they need to vote?

That's a lot of info and from many sources! And the info often change suddenly with voter suppression. How can voters get the info they need to make an informed choice quickly and easily? From a phone or laptop? Without internet access? In English or Spanish? In the form they like - list, map, video? How can people volunteer to increase voter turnout? How can grassroots voting rights groups collect and share this info with little money, time or staff?

That's where innovative, affordable technology and friendly user interface design comes in. Learn more about how to apply affordable tech for your cause here.
