Voter Technology products
Overseas arm of VBI (OVBI) has worked with Volunteer for a better India (VBI India) group to create technology solutions to make voter registration process easier for the new voters. We launched below products – thanks to a team of around 40 engineers and product development folks across USA, and many VBI volunteers in India.
1. Mobile app
This helps voters to fill the voter application with ease on their cell phones. It has features to automatically fill state, constituency, taluka fields from pincode simplifying this process. Once filled the App finds nearby VBI voter drives. Voter drive is a location setup by VBI where in voters can take their signed Form 6 voter application, photograph and proof of address. VBI volunteers will then help with proof checking as in right constituency, pincode, etc and carry multiple voter papers to ERO office. This will reduce rejections from ERO with incorrect applications and eliminate time by each voter to engage personally with Election offices.
2. Voter Portal

(Technology partners with NASCOMM and FICCI) OVBI tech team helped create http://indiavoting.org a voter registration website that has that is being marketed to 150,000 companies. It allows voters to fill new application, contact their volunteers and print applications.
