Text message goes to Johnson County database.  Address data is processed, polling place lookup is performed, and return message is sent to the voter.

Results are returned to the cell phone within 60 seconds.
TXT Polling Place Location

A person submitting a text request can see the voting location for any address in the county.  There are no apparent privacy issues in this, as there are several other ways that the caller could learn the voting location for a given address.

To develop and host the VOTEKS application, the Election Office worked with TextCaster, a local small business that has become a leading provider of wireless text messaging systems serving clients in media, education, public safety and banking throughout the United States.

VOTEKS is believed to have been the first interactive short-code messaging application used for any government function (not just elections) in the country.
