This week on Product Hunt, a new site launched to allow US eligible voters to register for the upcoming primary election. Using a simple three step process, VotePlz checks if you are already registered, registers you, and if needed, gives you instructions for mailing in your registration.
Unlike some of the other incredibly simple voter registration offerings, including the form you get by way of the DMV, VotePlz doesn’t require an envelope or postage. Having recently moved, I gave the site a whirl to see how long the process would take, and it came down to less than three minutes (not counting printing). Because I’ve also been lazy and have yet to get my South Carolina license, I’m forced to mail in my registration. When attempting to register through the state site a few weeks prior, I hit a brick wall because I didn’t yet have a local license. VotePlz on the other hand cleanly lays out the process, the information needed, and further allowed me to avoid going to the DMV for a few more months.
For those who need to vote early, use an absentee ballot, or are overseas, the site also helps walk you through who is eligible and the right website to register.
Although VotePlz is self-dubbed as literally the easiest way to register to vote, it joins other options such as the scan your ID to register, Vote.org’s simple registration form, and of course Google’s search result prompt
