PAST EVENT

DISCLAIMER! No, you CANNOT vote in Tuesday's, November 3rd, US election by coming to this online event in social virtual reality! However, it is only a matter of time before actual, practical, officially-recognized polling places show up in social VR. When? What are the key obstacles? (And there are many...) Join us -- in a school temporarily repurposed as a polling place, to vote in a non-binding, unofficial, online poll -- and discuss election voting technology! PS This event's purpose is to discuss the future of election technology, not debate the merits of the two presidential candidates.
