An election integrity app called VotifyNow allows users to report election irregularities, and it can make those reports available to individuals or organizations, including county officials, journalists, and candidates.
VotifyNow began in 2019, after complaints of election fraud became prevalent in the 2016 presidential and 2018 midterm elections, the founder of VotifyNow, Johnny Vieira, told Just the News on Wednesday. He noted that, at the time, candidates on the left were discussing election fraud, whereas now, conservatives are more concerned about it.
“We absolutely encourage anyone to file reports,” Vieira said.
“Our goal is more transparency,” he added, noting that “with all the craziness with elections, this will help build confidence. With transparency comes confidence in the system.”
