A voter-driven system of government for the 21st Century
"What a step forward to bring power and democracy to disadvantaged communities." - Elaine in Orlando, FL
"It would be great if we could all vote on an app such as this!" - Diana in Gotha, FL
Voting Rights Brigade, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, has partnered with Voatz, a Boston-based mobile voting software company, to launch the Digital Democracy Project.
The Voting App
Voatz provides the mobile app itself. Since 2018, Voatz has been selected by several states and municipalities to run elections for military overseas voters and for voters with disabilities. As such, they always follow stringent rules for cyber security, privacy, and auditing. Voatz is trusted for its high level of security, transparency, and reliability.
In addition to standard voting capabilities, Voatz has worked with Voting Rights Brigade to enhance the app, adding features specifically designed for the Digital Democracy Project. And Voting Rights Brigade provides the legislative content for each ballot (“poll”) using nonpartisan information sourced directly from the legislature by Open States (Florida).
The Tracking System
Voting Rights Brigade has developed the Digital Democracy Project website and reporting capabilities, under the direction of our Founder/Director, Ramon Perez, an AI technology leader. We track the aggregated vote totals on each issue and in each district. We use MapBox technology to make the vote data easy to use and understand.
We make sure you are the human, registered and eligible voter that you claim to be. Then, we delete your private information.
Voatz uses Blockchain technology, 2-step verification, and biometrics to protect your identity and to confirm your eligibility to vote.
No information is ever stored. And your identity is never shared. Not now. Not ever.
Voting Rights Brigade validates registration status, which includes citizenship.
As a 501(c)(3) focused on voter access, we have been granted authority by the State of Florida to use the voter file in this manner.
Voting Rights Brigade securely aggregates all votes.
No identity, party, or demographic information is reported. We simply do not track it.
