Currently available for Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android and Microsoft's (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows Phone and slated to expand to Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iOS in the near future, VoterHub includes both national and statewide election data culled from a variety of resources and organizations.

In addition, the app includes features on voter registration, polling places and sample ballots. VoterHub also touts access to real-time Associated Press election coverage and results.

Consumers can use VoterHub to set up alert reminders and notifications for key dates and results. Users may also share VoterHub content via Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, foursquare and email.

The organization provides nonpartisan reporting and research, advocacy and technical assistance to all 50 states and the District of Columbia, helping policy makers determine which programs and policies deliver the strongest returns.
