Mobile devices are becoming increasingly ingrained into our lives. From education to work-life and entertainment to news updates, they are pretty much a part of our every activity. This year, we saw U.S. election campaigns making heavy use of internet and the social media.
It so seems that most smartphone and tablet users have been relying on their devices to get regular updates on the elections. In a recent poll, 60 percent mobile users have stated that they would definitely like to cast their votes via their mobile devices, if that were possible.
The probable ways through which a vote may be cast using a mobile device could be a mobile app or through text messages. However, neither of them are as yet so secure as to fully trust them with casting votes.
Out of the total users who participated in the poll, 41% said that they relied on their mobile devices to stay up to speed with the 2012 Elections updates. An interesting demographic divide was that whereas 38 percent of the Democrat users kept tabs on political news through their smartphones and tablets, in contrast only 25 percent Republicans reported the same.
The poll had been commissioned by Internet radio provider, Stitcher. Commenting on the results of the poll, the company’s CEO said, “While we expected people would be using mobile devices more this election cycle, the fact that mobile is already eclipsing more traditional outlets as a primary way to follow the candidates and election news is surprising.”
