Here’s your opportunity to change the world. Every year, thousands of people can’t vote their candidates into office because of bad design. There are amazing, hardworking election officials who are skilled in everything—except good design. And they know it. They want our help.

In her session on “Super Powers that Could Change the World: Using UX Skills to Design Democracy,” Dana Chisnell will tell the story of how it all started with the 2000 election and the infamous “butterfly ballot” that taught the world that design, indeed, matters. She’ll show you how your talents can help solve democracy’s design problem.
