The number of mobile phone users worldwide is set to reach 4.77 billion, according to Statista. Of these, 2.32 billion are smartphone users, with all the capabilities that entails. It’s with these figures in mind that organizations should consider utilizing Quick Response (QR) code for voting.

QR code technology for voting is run on types of two-dimensional barcodes. They can store large amounts of data and are read by imaging devices, such as smartphone cameras. First used in the automotive industry overseas, these black squares on white backgrounds took off in the public consciousness once marketers realized how easy they were to incorporate in marketing campaigns.

Now, the same convenience and versatility can be used for organizational elections. From private clubs to credit unions, Survey & Ballot Systems’ (SBS) QR codes for mobile voting simplify the process and make maximizing voter turnout that much easier.
