Even if they could be assured that their vote would be private, secure, and valid, just 37% of Registered Voters nationwide are ready to vote by smartphone. A ScottRasmussen.com national opinion survey found that 63% believe there is there too much risk of tampering and meddling for them to consider voting with their smartphone (see question wording and results).
Not surprisingly, there is a huge generation gap on this question. Most voters under 35 (55%) are ready to vote by smartphone. Just 17% of senior citizens think it’s a good idea.
Forty-two percent (42%) of Republicans are ready to give it a try along with 37% of Democrats and 31% of Independents.
