MILLENNIALS MEET DEMOCRACY - ONLINE
The Millennial Generationthink 20 year oldsis
the age group least likely to vote. But it is also
a creative and entrepreneurial age group and an age
group that frankly seems more interested that most
of us in how to make our world better. So, it's no
surprise really that Millennials have come up with
a rather ingenious way of helping peopleespecially
It's called Vote (Mostly) Online, and it is an
online service by some local, young entrepreneurs
who hang out at the co-working space 100state to help
folks who might find democracy more easily on their
smartphones get information about registering, learning
about candidates, and mailing in a ballot.
The easy-to-follow process is engaging and ends
up with a ballot and a stamped-envelope being sent
to one's door to be easily filled out and mailed in.
And while it is appropriately aimed at 20 year olds,
it's easy to imagine this online service being invaluable
to older adults, people with disabilities, and folks
who just need a little something extra to actually
participate in an election. Vote (Mostly) Online is
that something extra, and we've got smart Madison
Millennial's to thank.
