Mobile Voter
November 3rd, 2005

Mobile Voter lets users register to vote by sending an SMS message (more specifically, the user texts a CSC, Mobile Voter determines the appropriate district and then mails the correct forms to the user to sign and send back).

They have launched their first major trial in San Francisco with billboards and taxi tops around the city and musicians onstage at local concerts, have been telling people in the audience to take out their phones and register to vote on the spot.

They have been mailing forms in time for the registration deadline for the upcoming election and will follow up with SMS messages next Tuesday reminding people to actually vote (eventually they will be able to SMS people specific polling locations). They are non partisan.
