  • Why Don't We Vote With Our Smartphones?

    It's 2020 and we're still using paper ballots? We're still going to a physical poll site in the middle of a pandemic in order to participate in this archaic Democratic process? It's time we got our act together and used technology to usher in the future of voting, which will happen online and on our smartphones. In this special 2020 election episode of Free Your FN Mind Jonesy covers the benefits and barriers to voting online. He also breaks down why we no longer need the secret ballot. Hint: Google already knows who you're voting for.
