SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 5, 2012

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T and the Pew Center on the
States and Politics-360 announced the 2012 debut of VoterHub, a smartphone
application designed to serve as a nonpartisan clearinghouse for essential
voter information for the upcoming November 2012 General Election. The
VoterHub app provides voters with national and statewide candidate
information, and also provides a platform for voters to connect and share with
one another.

The smartphone app hosts many additional features such as: voter registration
information, voter specific polling place information, sample ballots, access
to Associated Press real-time election coverage, videos, candidate and local
ballot initiative information, and election results. VoterHub also allows the
user to set up alert reminders and notifications for key dates and results.

In addition, the app allows users to share content easily through several
different social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Google+,
LinkedIn, Foursquare, and email.

"Voting is an important civic duty for each one of us," said Tracy King, Vice
President of Public Affairs for AT&T. "This is why we are thrilled to launch
VoterHub which brings together all of the critical information voters need in
one easy-to-use app. VoterHub aims to educate voters and encourage Americans
to have their voices heard by voting in the upcoming election."

VoterHub uses information from a variety of national organizations to inform
voters and encourage them to take part in the November election. The Voting
Information Project—a joint effort of state and local officials, the Pew
Center on the States, Google Inc., AT&T and Microsoft Inc.— provides the
VoterHub app with critical and official information for voters including
state-specific voter ID laws, national and local candidate information, and
details on local ballot initiatives. Other sources VoterHub uses include Rock
the Vote, Turbo Vote, Google Election Center, official state election
websites, Vote Smart, and Pollster.

"We are proud to launch a voting app with AT&T that is a
one-stop-information-shop for the upcoming elections," said David Becker,
Director of the Pew Center on the States' Election Initiatives. "By using
official data from the Voting Information Project, this app helps bring
critical polling place, ballot content and registration information directly
to voters on their smartphones on and before Election Day."  

The VoterHub app is available today for Android and Windows Mobile users in
their app stores, and will be available in the Apple app store soon. The
mobile web app is available on any mobile device with a browser at
http://voterhub.us.
