Voter Registration Bots

HelloVote Registers Voters Through Facebook Messenger

— September 23, 2016 — World
Voter registration is often one of the main barriers that keeps people from voting, so the HelloVote bot is making it as easy as sending some messages to a friend. The bot, which is available through the massively popular Facebook Messenger app, can register American voters for the upcoming federal election directly through the messaging platform.

Beyond the convenience of functioning within an app that many smartphone users already both own and use frequently, HelloVote makes voter registration a simple process that can be done in the time it takes to heat up food during a lunch break. On average, the HelloVote registration process takes just 90 seconds. Further, the app is available and functional in all 50 US states.

As a Facebook-adapted service, the HelloVote system should increase the number of new and young voters in the US.
Trend Themes
1. Ease-of-use Voter Registration - HelloVote's Facebook Messenger bot streamlines voter registration, making it a quick and simple process for potential voters.
2. Mobile App Registration - The HelloVote bot leverages the popularity and convenience of Facebook Messenger to reach a wide audience, encouraging more people to register to vote.
3. Efficiency in Voter Registration - By reducing the registration process to just 90 seconds, HelloVote eliminates barriers and increases accessibility to voter registration.
Industry Implications
1. Political Technology - HelloVote's registration bot represents a disruptive innovation opportunity in the realm of political technology, revolutionizing the voter registration process.
2. Social Media Platforms - Facebook Messenger's integration with HelloVote opens up a new avenue within social media platforms for organizations to engage and facilitate voter registration.
3. Government and Civic Services - HelloVote's bot presents an opportunity for government agencies and civic organizations to adopt similar digital solutions to simplify and encourage voter registration.
