“The only thing you should be thinking about when you’re voting is who you’re going to vote for. We want to make it so that you don’t have to worry about the what, where, what forms,” says Seth Flaxman, co-founder and executive director of Turbovote, a start up based in New York. He is interested in removing what he sees as the “friction” in the process of registering.
Turbovote is of one of a host of websites that try to make sure you are on the voter rolls ahead of the election. Which is nice. But Turbovote’s real strength is that it won’t give up on you after this election day November 6.
“More importantly, we keep you registered and help you vote in all of your elections, local to presidential over the course of your lifetime no matter where you move,” Flaxman says. He wants to make the registration process as easy as renting a DVD from Netflix.
