Collin County, TX needed an answer to alleviate long voter line waits without giving the impression that voters were being sent away from a polling site. How do you inform voters that they can vote at another location with a shorter line without explicitly telling them? The solution – strategically placed QR Codes that routes to the closest polling location and line wait time on the voter’s device. The voter can chose for themselves to leave their place in a long line to seek out shorter one.
