Fact 1: In 2008, an estimated 1.9 million citizens did not vote simply because they didn’t know where to go
Fact 2: 93% of Americans have a mobile phone
Fact 3: A text message reminder on Election Day increases likelihood of voting by 4-5%
Mobile Commons is pleased to announce our new Mobile Polling Place Locator, released in partnership with the Voting Information Project.
Here’s how it works: Text in your address and immediately find out where to vote. And because it’s available over SMS, it works on almost every phone. There’s no need to install any apps or even use a data plan.

- Text DONDE to 30644 (Spanish)
The easiest way to use the polling place locator is to integrate it into your Get Out the Vote communication. If you send constituents a reminder to go vote on Tuesday, just ask them to reply with their address. This will be sent to mData and the user will get their polling place location and hours of operation.
We are providing our Mobile Polling Place Locator to all our mData customers free of charge. It’s very easy to add this to your Mobile Commons account and you can feel free to brand it however you like. Contact us to learn more and get started today!
