In a move that wasn’t widely publicized, the D.C. Board of Elections recently discontinued the long-troubled app, killing the only means for residents to register online to vote in the process. Election officials say the app was notoriously buggy and no longer reliable. And they concede it isn’t likely that the elections board will be able to roll out a new app before the Nov. 3 election, potentially making it more difficult for new residents to register to vote or for existing voters to change their information. “We are working to identify a new possible vendor, but significant testing would need to be done prior to launch, and we’re not sure this will be doable before the general [election],” said Rachel Coll, a spokeswoman for the elections board, in an email. “We’re actively looking, though.” Martin Austermuhle, DCist.
