VoterHub, a new app from AT&T, the Pew Center on the States and Politics-360, is designed to be a non-partisan one-stop-shop for everything voters need to know on Election Day. Voters can use the app to find out how to register to vote in their state, locate their nearest polling place, check out some sample ballots, research non-candidate ballot issues and read election news from the Associated Press.
