Prevoting, using mobile devices with NFC technology, and a new Express Voting LaneYou're at your local voting booth, and waiting in line to vote is one of the least productive things you can be doing right now. You look around and you see there's people using their phones tapping a box and leaving out the booth in 30 seconds. Welcome to November, 2016. You don't know anything about the new Voting Express Lane and you arrive at your local voting booth, and while looking around you see signs with QR codes about downloading the new offline pre-voting app. You see people on their phones waiting in line, so you give it a try. You log in, 5 minutes go by and you've marked all the mayors you want to be elected and the governor.
You now have two choices: wait in line to get a unique id that's embedded into a QR code, or grab some paper and a pen and wait in line and manually vote...again. You got things to do, so you scan the QR code, the app connects with your voting data, and you wait in line. When you reach the booth, there's a tablet and an NFC tag area. You tap your phone, a confirmation asking you if you're sure about these choices pops up, you hit ok. In the background, the voting data is sent to the local server and it gets double checked by humans and a computer. Green light shows up, and you're back to doing the things you love to do.
