Everyone Should Download the ‘Election Protection Smartphone App’

Texting is pretty easy. Voting can be harder. So a bunch of noteworthy organizations — the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, National Association of Latino Appointed and Elected Officials Education Fund, New Organizing Institute, Rock the Vote and Verified Voting Foundation — have teamed up to create "the Election Protection Smartphone Application" for mobile-savvy Americans who can't remember where they put their voting registration forms.
According to their website, the app will allow voters to:
•    Verify their registration;
•    Register to vote;
•    Look up their polling place;
•    Review key voting rules and regulations for their  state;
•    See what type of machine they vote on; and
•    Contact Election Protection via phone or email to report a problem or get answers to their questions.
Now if only the app could tell us who Romney plans on picking for his running mate and save us a few zillion postulating op-eds! Perchance to dream.
