*For most of Gen Z, the 2020 election marks their first foray into electoral politics. So given the historic stakes of this election, how will the world’s most tech-savvy generation engage with the democratic process today?
Like they do for most things – they’re going to turn to their iPhone. That’s why Apple curated an Election Hub with resources needed to successfully navigate this election – from confirming registration status to voting early in person or by mail, registering to vote, and most importantly, getting facts.
Here are a few apps that can help:
Electo: Providing voters with raw, unbiased information on elected officials and candidates through a transparent and nonpartisan antidote to biased news. The CEO and Founder, Naeim Khanjani, purposefully built this app to help revive the US democracy—to better inform every voter to conscientiously elect local, state, and national representatives. Aggregating all publicly available information from political figures in real-time in one ongoing feed, it also includes social media posts from multiple platforms, voting records, and events. #themoreyouknow
Brief: Provides news summaries and curated opinion pieces that ensure you hear from voices outside your bubble. The feed features perspectives from voices that matter – politicians and experts across the spectrum – and lets them speak for themselves.
Winno: Aggregates an election news feed that’s been fact-checked by human editors and aims to combat information overload.
Ballotpedia’s app, My Vote Ballotpedia: Provides examples of 2020 U.S. primary and general election ballots. This app previews individuals’ ballots so people head to the polls feeling prepared and confident with their vote. It’s a great tool that serves up content like a digital encyclopedia of American politics and elections.
