This is the second of a series of articles on how to get the most out of your iPhone.  I have been using iPhones for more than five years and have discovered hundreds of useful features within this marvelous device.  These articles will help you discover the hidden power of your iPhone.

REGISTER TO VOTE ON YOUR IPHONE

I tell my workshop attendees, “Most of the things I used to do on my PC, I now do on my iPhone.” There is nothing I can do on my PC that I can’t do on my iPhone. I write these articles on my iPhone, I read my newspapers and books on my iPhone. Check the weather. Check local movie listings. Surf the Web. Order from Starbucks. Listen to music.

And now we can even register to vote on our iPhones or iPads. Simply open the Safari web browser and type RegisterToVote.ca.gov or you can open Spotlight Search by swiping down or left-to-right on the home screen and type register to vote ca and you’re a few steps away from completing your registration.

The opening screen lets you select a non-English language. Tap the Register to Vote Now button at the bottom.

You will be guided through 5 simple screens to enter your demographics and complete your registration. The entire process takes about 2 minutes — simple!

You can also help a friend or relative to register on your iPhone. Now you have no excuse not to register to vote.
