NEW YORK, Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Today, QU-in announced that they are making their innovative virtual queueing software available to all states nationwide for free to help maintain safety for in-person voters and polling station volunteers this election. States need only pay pennies per voter, the cost of the SMS send, to use QU-in’s innovative solution. It only takes two days for counties to set up and be running.
“At QU-in we believe that everyone has a right to vote and should be able to exercise that right without worrying about their safety and wellbeing,” said Nick Fortunato, CMO of QU-in “Many people want to vote in-person and we’re thrilled we’re able to offer a safer solution for them to do that. Not many counties are set up to handle the expected crowds while safely maintaining social distancing. With QU-in people can wait anywhere they are comfortable and don’t have to physically stand in line to vote, potentially exposing them to risk.”
How QU-in works:
- Voters check the wait time online at their local polling station
- Voters send an SMS to their local polling station to reserve a virtual place in line
- Voters receive an SMS back with their place in line and approximate wait time
- Workers at the polling stations call the next voters in through the QU-in app as voting booths become available

No voter information is stored or matched to any voting records. QU-in is not a voting mechanism, it is a solution to allow people to vote without having to physically stand on a line potentially exposing them to COVID-19. This is not in competition with absentee voting or any other mail-in process, it is an additive solution to help maintain safety for what we expect will be a larger than usual in-person voting turnout this election.
