Hi everyone, another maker here who did a large part of the development work. Thank you so much for all of your support and input. We want this app to be as seamless and secure as possible, so please don't hesitate to let us know how we can improve.

I'm happy to answer any technical questions you might have about the app. Like Nathaniel said, every connection is established securely using the state registrar's official certificate, and absolutely none your information is stored by anyone but the state. We keep the information in the app while you register, and then permanently delete it on submission.

We're working hard to add the remaining 19 states before the general election, and we're always looking for good developers to help us get there. I'm primarily an iOS developer, so Android skills are highly prized to help us reach across platforms and register as many voters as possible.

Please let me know if I can clarify anything or address any specific technical concerns, and thanks again for checking us out!

Hey everyone, one of the makers here to help answer any questions you might have. Thank you again to Mark for hunting us. We really want to make sure Californians are registered before the May 22nd deadline, and if you've happened to miss your primary, don't fret! Register to Vote can still help you register for the general election.

I know security is a big issue that comes to mind every time personal information like addresses, names, and email addresses are involved in an application. Rest assured, we do not store any information populated by your state-issued barcode, nor information that you input manually.

Our application functions like autofill systems do in most modern browser, but using information from the barcode as well as user entered information. The security is handled through the state registrar's official certificate, and all submissions go directly through the state's already-existing website.

If you want to stay up to date on new additions, or if you want to help us test new states (it's tricky for out of state people to test registration systems in other states due to local laws), we'll be adding a mailing list soon. We currently work in CA, MA, PA, AZ, CO, and MO. We are working hard to add the other 19 states that support online voter registration as soon as possible.

Please let me know if I can clarify anything! Thanks again for checking us out, and we'll hopefully have an Android version in the near future.

Voting is due a technical re-haul (globally!!) - this is a great step in the right direction.

I saw support from @SamuelLJackson about this app yesterday too!

I've gotten a lot more into politics this past year (and am finally able to vote this election #citizen 🇺🇸✌️) so I knew I wanted to vote, and that I needed to register, but never knew how. Always one too many Google Searches away...

Until now. Thank you @mcuban for hunting this 😎
