Utah County To Test Blockchain Voting In Municipal Primary Elections

Utah County has announced that it will pilot a mobile voting app from Voatz in its upcoming municipal primary election in August. Utah County is the latest jurisdiction to implement mobile voting and the first jurisdiction in Utah to offer blockchain-based mobile voting to active-duty military.

“Utah’s pilot is another sign that the momentum for mobile voting in our country is very real and supports our theory that when you show people a much better way to do something, there becomes a demand for it,” said Bradley Tusk, founder and CEO of Tusk Philanthropies. “As we enter into a Presidential election year, we have to continue to remove as many barriers and hurdles as possible so a lot more people are able to participate in our democracy.”
