I did not vote in the 2016 election. Why did you not perform your civic duty, Anna? Well, great question! I’m so glad you asked. I did not vote, because as an out of state student, it was extremely frustrating to get an absentee ballot from the State of Idaho. The process is about as efficient as nailing jello to a wall. Appsentee works to fill the gap left by those wanting to vote, but being unable to due to time, work, travel, or disability. The app helps users become an informed voter, discover which candidates most align with their views, and vote directly from their phone. Appsentee tailors the electoral process to the user to create a more politically active voter.
