In 2012, UOCAVA voters from San Bernardino County (CA) were able to use the LiveBallot ballot delivery tool for the first time. After downloading their ballot, voters were asked to participate in a short survey about their voting experience. Below is a summary of the survey results and actual voter feedback about their experience.
“The County and Democracy Live are to be congratulated for developing and deploying this modern tool to assist all voters in the County and around the world.”
