Partnering with Rock the Vote, Pew Center and Google, Foursquare has launched I Voted. With the current elections in America in full swing, the social media check-in provider is enticing young voters to get out to their polling stations. Foursquare users earn badges when they check-in at any of the 107,000 polling stations that the network updating tool is connected with.
What’s more appealing about I Voted is that it not only gives badges for those that check-in, but users can visually learn who has voted and how many people have voted in their local area, state or throughout America. With real time updating, the tool can only help to get young and everyone excited to take part in the electoral process.
The I Voted website is a masterful artistic diagram of whom voted, where and when throughout the day. Designed by Jess3, a creative agency dedicated toward creating stunning data visualization and social strategies, I Voted gives a spectacular visual interpretation of who has checked-in at their polling stations.
Users earn an “I Voted” badge when they vote, and users can utilize the hashtag: #ivoted within their social devices. Get out in vote if your in America!
