We are excited to announce the launch of the G.A.B.’s mobile elections application (app) for the Android platform. We would like to extend an invitation to all of our clerk partners, with Android supported phones, to be among the first to try our new mobile application.

The new application will be launched and marketed extensively to voters and the general public in preparation for the November election.  Before we can make this exciting new tool publically available, we need your assistance.  If you have an Android supported phone we ask that you please follow the instructions attached to this memorandum to download the mobile application “Vote WI.”  Once you have had a chance to try the app out for yourself, we ask that you please provide us with any feedback by completing this survey: http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22GBSQS8UHH.  With your input, we will make the changes necessary to make the G.A.B.’s mobile elections app the most useful and reliable tool it can be.  We are intentionally providing limited instructions on the functionality of the app so that you can provide us with feedback on the ease of use. 

For those of you with iPhones, the app for the Apple platform is currently in development and is anticipated to be launched before the November election.

An important note when downloading the app:  If your Android supported phone is serviced through AT&T you may not be able to access this version of the app.  AT&T has special firewalls on their phones that block the download of “test” apps.  Once the public version is available, AT&T users will also be able to download the app.

If you have any problems downloading the app or any questions or comments, please contact Meagan McCord Wolfe – Voter Services Specialist with the Government Accountability Board at Meagan.wolfe@wi.gov or (608) 266-8175.
