The Election Toolkit Is Live!

After over a year of planning, building, and testing, the Election Toolkit launched on June 16, 2016. 

A collection of free and low-cost tech tools to help election officials engage their communities and improve how elections are run, the Toolkit includes tools like a Twitter guide, a free app to measure voter wait times, tools for publishing real-time election results, and a collection of civic icons. Each tool comes with step-by-step instructions to make it usable by any election official, regardless of their technical ability.

You’re invited to visit www.electiontools.org, sign up so you can bookmark your favorite tools and leave feedback, and share the website with all the election officials in your network. You can also visit the site to recommend a tool to add to the collection. 

The Election Toolkit has been built by the Center for Technology and Civic Life in partnership with the Center for Civic Design, the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections, the Inyo County Clerk-Recorder-Registrar, and the Suburban Cook County Clerk.
