MUNICIPAL ELECTION: Need election info? There’s an app for that

City of Victoria offers iPhone app for election information

Want election information at your fingertips? The City of Victoria has updated its free Victoria Votes iPhone app for the upcoming civic election.

Victoria’s largest demographic is between the ages of 25 and 39, a group that is also very active in communicating through social media.

The Victoria Votes app is intended to be an additional way to reach Victorians and make election information easier to access. The app complements other sources of voting information, including victoria.ca, Twitter, Facebook and voter information cards recently mailed directly to every household.

Available for free on iTunes, voters can download the app to their iPhone, iTouch or iPad.

The app provides information including where to find the nearest voting station, who is eligible to vote, and identification requirements. Users can link to Twitter and Facebook to share the latest civic election information. It also provides information on advance voting days and other accessible voting options.

The app was originally launched in 2010 for byelection and referendum information. Users who downloaded the app for 2010 can simply update their app for this year’s information.

General voting day for the civic election is Nov. 19, and advance voting is on Nov. 9 and 14 at City Hall.

For more information and to download the app, visit www.victoria.ca/election.
