The Election Runner iOS & Android mobile app is available as a free download on iTunes & Google Play. The purpose of the mobile app is to provide voters with an easy way to find an organization and its currently running elections.
The mobile app is not required for voters to vote on their mobile device. Election Runner is a web application, which means voters can access elections from any internet connected device by using their device’s web browser (Safari, Chrome, Firefox, etc.). The mobile app can be a convenient way for voters to search for and find an organization’s elections, but it is not necessary for the majority of use-cases.
For example, if an election administrator provides an email address for each voter (see: Voter Email Addresses), then they will not need to download the Election Runner app as the link in their email will open in their device’s browser.
