An App That Makes Voting Easier

The Brink Election Guide, available free for both iOS and Android devices, states it is “built for accessibility”, “optimized for low vision and color blindness” and “made for a screen reader.” To get ready for voting, the user can access voting checklists for “registration, researching candidates, learning your voting rights, what to bring to the booth, and more!” The voter can preview their ballots to “See every race, research every candidate, and favorite your choices.” Our tester, a political junkie at heart, said he was able to find local candidates with his screen reader, read about them on their websites, add the ones he wants to vote for to the favorite list, and can refer to that list when he votes. Brink also offers instant help and support.
