Submission + - No, you can't text your vote (washingtonpost.com)

Okian Warrior writes: Lifting imagery directly from Hillary Clinton’s campaign materials, ads circulated on twitter encourage supporters of Hillary Clinton to “vote early” and “vote from home” by texting their candidate’s name to a five-digit number.

“Save time. Avoid the line,” one reads.

“Vote early. Text ‘Hillary’ to 59925,” says another.

There is no such thing as voting by text message. Period. If you want to cast a ballot, you can vote at your polling station or vote absentee. That’s it.

But ads circulated on Twitter recently would have you believe otherwise.
