Voter registration – there’s an app for that

I’m in Austin, where South By Southwest is happening. I normally have the Austinite reaction to our version of March Madness — stay far away & ignore everything. But this morning, there was an interview on the local news with Maria Teresa Kumar and America Ferrera and they were talking about a voter registration app. Voto Latino released the app yesterday. They said that the number one reason Latinos vote is because someone asked them. Here’s a link to the interview: KXAN interview with Ms Kumar & Ms Ferrera. They have a panel at 12:30 today, here’s the info on it — some panels are streamed (I don’t know how to tell if it will be): http://schedule.sxsw.com/2016/events/event_PP90096

And here is a link to the app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/voterpal/id1085731116?mt=8

All kinds of things have been going on, huge arguments and things have gotten ugly. But no matter the candidate, all of us can agree that tools to register more voters are good, right?
