Chandler, Arizona is planning to test voting by cell phone.
The Chandler Mayor and City Council are moving forward with a mobile voting program that would allow voting by cell phone.
A Chandler resident told The Gateway Pundit “It’s concerning to everybody. A lot of us have concerns about the security of an election over the phone. We don’t really wanna be a test kitchen nationwide especially with the disaster of the last election.”
City council members approved a pilot program on Aug. 26 that would look into utilizing block-chain technology as a secure form of voting from anywhere that would allow more participation in election.
“This pilot program will help us identify the feasibility and interest of using this technology in future City elections, and Council believes this could enhance accessibility, increase voter participation and streamline the election process,” according to Mayor Kevin Hartke.
The concept would first be tested in a mock election later this year for a three-week period after the city’s bond election on Nov. 2.
State law prohibits voting by phone, so the Arizona Legislature would have to act to make this a reality on a larger scale.
One Arizona Legislator has already given a simple “No”.

August 23 Work Session Recap: Mobile Voting Pilot
At a recent Work Session, Council gave direction to staff to move forward with a mobile voting pilot program for a mock election. This program will utilize blockchain technology, offering a secure method of voting that enables citizens to vote from anywhere, with a goal of increasing participation in City elections.
Vice Mayor Mark Stewart has spearheaded this effort since 2019, meeting with County and State officials to discuss using blockchain to conduct elections in Arizona and researching the success other cities have seen in using blockchain for military and overseas voters. This pilot program will help us identify the feasibility and interest of using this technology in future City elections, and Council believes this could enhance accessibility, increase voter participation and streamline the election process.
If approved at the August 26 Council Meeting, this pilot program will run for a three-week period after the City’s November 2 bond election has concluded. Questions will mirror the bond election and will gauge interest in utilizing mobile voting in future elections.
As the community of innovation, we pursue smart, sustainable solutions that empower, engage and improve the quality of life for residents and that advance our efforts to meet the unique needs of the community.

Kamala Harris and the Dems have already agreed that people of color don’t know how to “find a Kinkos or office max” to scan their ID. Now, these people are asking them to understand blockchain technology?
Not only that, you can scan any document using a smartphone.
Voters are not experiment subjects.
Why do we continue to sacrifice security for convenience?
