Process

We used an agile approach to take the existing physical voter ID and transform it into something better. The first step was determining what parts of the existing voting process could be improved. We focussed on the user journey leading up to election day, from finding their local candidates, to determining where and how to vote.

After developing a prototype, we integrated routine demonstrations and tester feedback to perfect the experience. This iterative process allowed us to minimise costs and meet the tight election deadline.

Features

EasyVote brings together voter ID, candidate details and polling booth locations into a unified app. Live waiting times and geolocation reveal the ideal polling booths for voters. Local candidate information allows for a more informed vote. A digital voter ID card reduces environmental waste and shortens queues on polling day.
