Version 1.1 includes a number of new features, enhancements, and fixes that improve the public beta that was originally released on October 24, the first day of early voting. These include:
- Wait times for polling locations, provided by FOMO.vote. This allows you to choose the closest polling location near you that also has the shortest line. Remember that if you live in Travis or Williamson counties, you can vote at any polling location in your county, both during early voting and on Election Day.
- Candidates’ answers to important questions developed by Open Austin as part of their 2016 Council Survey. Open Austin is a volunteer citizen brigade advocating for open government, open data, and civic application development since 2009.
- A welcome video to introduce folks to Austin Tech Alliance.
- Many design improvements and user experience enhancements.
