Exhibiting In Politicon’s Democracy Village
Follow My Vote will have a booth in the Democracy Village at Politicon. We will be informing attendees on the ways Follow My Vote is advancing and reforming voting around the world. Additionally we will be educating people about blockchain technology and how our end-to-end verifiable voting software works.
We are also excited to tell people about our parallel election. If you haven’t signed up, do so here. To fund this demonstration of our platform we are running a Kickstarter. If you support honest elections and believe our voting systems should modernized, please donate.
One of Follow My Vote’s partners, The Free and Equal Elections Foundation, will also be joining us in the Democracy village. Free and Equal will be talking with attendees about their mission to broaden electoral choices through education. The foundation will also be distributing products from their sponsors: Dr. Bronner’s, Marley Coffee, TeaZen , Hearthstone Estate and others.

Located in the Pasadena Convention Center’s Exhibit Halls A & B, Democracy Village will allow exhibitors the opportunity to promote their business or organization, create displays, and interact with attendees.
