Through synthesizing our primary and secondary research findings, we defined a set of goals to drive our design solution:
- Provide first-time and experienced voters with a single point, start-to-finish experience
- Accommodate traditional in-person voting and scaling to long-term online voting models
- Extend the idea of voting beyond election day by keeping the voter informed of candidates and issues before elections and results after elections
- Support election volunteers with robust training and communication tools
Our overall solution focused around a non-biased app - Intuitive Voting - that would provide objective, location-centric information to voters and volunteers. While the concept is focused on near-term information delivery, it is intended as a scalable platform that would enable remote, online voting in the future. For example, the app provides a ballot for voters to fill out ahead of time and take to the voting booth for reference and efficiency, but in the future, the app might also support vote submission.
