Twitter users who vote in elections throughout the U.S. Tuesday can activate a hashtag-triggered emoji by including #IVoted in their tweets.
Senior public policy manager Bridget Coyne detailed other Election Day-related Twitter initiatives in a blog post:
- The social network teamed up with the organizers of National Voter Registration Day in September to host a discussion about the importance of staying connected, both online and in the polling booth, and starting with registering to vote.
- Coyne shared this list of accounts to follow with voters.
- Election Day 2017 marks the fourth year of Twitter’s partnership with The Pew Charitable Trusts’ Voting Information Project, and Coyne said voters can go here and enter their addresses in order to get the locations of their local polling places.
