Today’s systems are the result of piecemealed technologies overlaid on existing norms. Current voting systems can be hard for users to navigate and provide little in terms of the pre-voting and post-voting experience.
Impediments to voting include time spent traveling to and waiting to vote, language barriers and poor environmental conditions at some polling places.
Selection is an end to end voting experience, offering multiple channels of user engagement, ultimately making the act of voting easy for everyone.
