(Before It's News)

A new chatbot based service is making it a lot easier for anyone to register to vote.

HelloVote launched on Thursday according to CNNMoney. It was launched to help register people in a minute by sending a few texts.

During the last presidential election, about 33 million people were reported as not registered, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Another 28 million, of 13% of eligible voters, did not respond, weren’t asked or refused to comment on their registration status.

HelloVote’s goal is to get as many Americans to the polls on Tuesday, November 8 for the upcoming presidential election.

HelloVote co-founder Elana Berkowitz told CNNMoney:

[Although] companies use a lot of the forward-thinking technologies, we haven’t seen that trickle down to some of the very basic aspects of our civic lives.

Berkowitz spent two years working with the Obama administration on policy and technology.

HelloVote has already signed up national and regional partners including: MTV, Rock The Vote, West Elm, Twilio and Care2.
