TROY—The Troy-based web content management system developer Revize announced the introduction of a new voter tool, Election Connection by Revize.
Election Connection will provide municipalities a bundle of tools for citizens to easily find information on upcoming elections. There are three main sections included in the bundle:
- Where/When Do I Vote?
- Am I Registered?
- Frequently Asked Questions
By entering an address, users can find polling locations, election dates and times, and a Google Map view with the option for directions. Website visitors can also check to see if they are registered to vote by entering a few pieces of information. There are also directions on how to register. The Frequently Asked Questions section allows a municipality to add its own questions that may pertain to more local voting specifications.
Revize has made this tool available to all existing county clients at no cost. Once a county requests the tool, Revize will install a custom version of Election Connect with the county’s logo. Along with providing it to existing clients for free, Revize is giving away 50 versions of Election Connection to the first 50 who sign up, regardless if they are a Revize client or not.
Tools like Election Connection will help municipalities cut down on the questions they receive through email and over the phone, freeing up more time for them to focus on the logistics of providing a smooth election.
