At SMS Text News towers we love to hear about new ways of using your mobile phone in every day life. This story fits that bill. Now, thanks to Mediaburst and DSI UK voters will be able to register themselves on the electoral roll by text message.
The service will be launching in August and it will involve texting a unique PIN and ID to your local authority. For the 150 local authorities that work with DSI the text service will complement the existing ways to register which are calling a hotline number or filling in an on-line form.
After a numbers of years in the early nineties where the numbers on the electoral roll ‘mysteriously’ fell after the introduction on the Poll Tax, this now means that no-one has an excuse to not vote.
