Introduction

This polling place timer gathers data that will be used to better predict time required to vote, dependent on the ballot length and voting mechanism.

The app will compute average voting times using observations of up to 4 voting booths by simply tapping a button each time a new voter enters.

Results can be automatically uploaded to a database so that times for a variety of ballots and voting systems can be compared nationally and used to more accurately predict needs for future elections. You will also have the option to download your own summaries and timing data from all precincts within your jurisdiction that use this timer.

The app starts in Practice Mode. Click "Connect" to connect to the database only when you are at a polling place and ready to record results. You may use the app without recording by remaining in Practice Mode.

When a voter enters a voting booth, click the "Voter Enters" button. This also ends the previous voter's session. If you miss a turnover by less than a minute, click this button anyway. The average between the two voters will still be correct

With a steady stream of voters, just use the "Voter Enters" button. Use the "Vacant Booth" button only if there's nobody ready to use the booth.

If you get distracted and lose track of voters, press the "Pause" button. If 15 minutes elapse with no updates, the app pauses automatically.

If there is no line, or if poll workers slow down or pause to allow lines for voting booths to clear, please pause this timer.
