The .voting domain name is a new community-defined top-level domain (TLD) that sits within the current Domain Name System (DNS). It allows for individuals and entities to register their own or any existing domains.
The .voting domain name will be the only internet domain where individuals can register to vote, or verify that they are already registered.
By registering your own .voting domain name name, you could then do whatever you want with it; use it as an email address, develop a website containing political information, etc.
This benefits the individual because every person in the world has an inherent right to vote, and now they can make their voice heard by simply clicking on a hyperlink.
It also benefits society because there is no longer any excuse not to vote. There never was before, but now there is even less of one.
Political campaigns, government entities, and civic groups will all benefit from the .voting domain name:
Political campaigns: The .voting domain name provides an efficient and accurate way for people interested in voting or political candidates to find their desired information without risking misinformation or fraud.
Governments & NGOs: Participating in governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) can provide accurate voter information to the public.
Civic groups: Organizations interested in increasing civic participation can provide access to necessary tools or information, such as registration deadlines, online ballots, sample ballots, and polling locations.
The .voting domain name is a new TLD that sits within the current DNS. It allows for individuals and entities to register their own or any existing domains.
Every person in the world has an inherent right to vote, and now they can make their voice heard by simply clicking on a hyperlink.
Every individual that is a citizen of a country allows voting and every entity that represents that person. Every eligible registrant can register one or more domain names for each election, referendum, etc. in which they are interested.
There are no requirements for a registrant of a .voting domain name.
You can manage your own .voting domain by using the same interface that you currently use to manage your current domains. All of the standard TLDs work in this system, including generic and country-code TLDs.
Every internet user can have his/her own web address to publish information about his/her voting status or provide links to external sources with accurate information about elections, referendums, or any other kind of voting taking place at the national or local level.
It would be much easier to verify information about registration deadlines, access online ballots, etc.
Companies can make use of their .voting domain name to publish information or provide links to external sources with accurate voting-related information.
For example, an online bookstore could post a link on their website for users to find out more about the next city council election and the candidates involved.
Other examples might include online media outlets providing user feedback via polls related to upcoming elections for various public offices.
