    More on the "I Voted" app

    "The app, located at http://election.foursquare.com , connects with the user's existing Foursquare account locate their polling location, local voter ID requirements and a list of the candidates and propositions that will be on the ballot there.

    The payoff will happen on Nov. 6, when users can check in for an "I voted" badge and watch other users check in at polling locations across the country on the website in real time. The map will also provide unique features like time and gender breakdowns, as well as public tweets about voting, according to Foursquare."

    What if we already voted through an absentee ballot?
  • JR1JR1 November 2012
    Follow the first set of unlock instructions. That will get you the badge.

    Does anyone know what platform is this app for? The link gives no info...foursquare just assumes that everyone has an iClone, so I wouldn't be surprised if this app is just for iOS or Android. Their support for Windows Phone is pitiful.
  • choad17choad17 November 2012
    I believe for any platform. From the 4sq app, you can connect apps. I believe the option is in the settings.
  • AFuentesJrAFuentesJr November 2012
    Not surprisingly, their is no option for that in the Windows Phone app...oh well, I'll get the badge the other way. Thanks @choad17

  • UmutUmut November 2012
    I tried it with I Vote and #iVoted in Washington DC venues. Just got the NBC badges. There is a problem.
  • nuevicnuevic November 2012
    What seems to be the problem? It's not even started voting yet.
  • DanDan November 2012
    Most Voting Polls do not open until 7AM. The state I live opens at 6AM. Patience young Grasshoppers Patience:)
  • coma323 November 2012
    Is it "I voted" or "#ivoted" you need to shout?
  • rbk_4sq November 2012
    Polling station only or any venue?
    Mobile web or real ci?
