Smartphone app to make voting easier in county

Want to save money, disseminate election information and possibly engage more young people in the democratic process?

There's an app for that.

Sonoma County Elections, a free mobile application, debuted Tuesday in time to help voters participate in the June 3 primary election.

"Everything on our website is now at the palm of your hand," said Gloria Colter, the county's assistant registrar of voters.

The app, available for downloading from the App Store and Google Play for iPhone, iPad and Android mobile devices, enables citizens to:

- Check their voter registration status and register to vote.

- Find their polling place and look up voting districts.

- View their sample ballot and voter information pamphlet.

- Apply for and subsequently track a vote-by-mail ballot.

- Check campaign finance statements for county offices.
