On the move...?
This short messaging service (SMS) tool provides voters with election information via text message. By texting “VOTE” or “VOTO” to GOVOTE (468-683), voters can find polling places, contact information for local election officials, and registration URLs. The app is available in multiple languages.
By sending a text message to Pew (The Pew Charitable Trusts), you consent to receive voting information via one or more text messages from an automated system. This is a free service, but standard text message rates may apply. You may revoke consent by contacting Pew, including by texting STOP.
