AusPoll - Prototype

Team Name: 
Westmelon

In July 2016, Australian leaders expressed a strong interest in introducing electronic voting for future elections.

And we are here to announce that the future of election is here.

Introducing AusPoll…

 

AusPoll consists of 3 different apps to be installed on separate tablets and used by different users.

    NameRoll: designed for election volunteers to ease the enrollment process

    Ballotronic: designed for electors to minimise informal votes and making election a more friendly experience

    Tally Room: designed for the Tally Room. All the votes are centralised, so counting them only requires a few taps.

We are all excited to make the apps into reality in the future and help Australians having a much better election experience.

 

The prototype is designed based on reviewing what AEC has researched and concluded over the last decade. By going through data (and instructions) mentioned in the project, it helps us to understand different users, their user stories and their pains, therefore how to optimise the election process by going paperless.
