HelloVote first launched as a voter registration chatbot in September, but has since expanded to offer information on polling locations, voter ID requirements, and more to make sure prospective voters actually make it to the polls. Using the bot also gives you an excuse to take a “purposeful selfie,” HelloVote cofounder Elana Berkowitz quipped. Once you tell the bot you have voted, it prompts you to remind your friends to vote by taking a selfie emblazoned with an “I Voted” filter, in the style of Facebook’s filters for profile pictures.
