Account

Do I need to Signup?

To vote in MapMyVote you need to signup or login as a guest. MapMyVote needs to know where you're voting from so we can accurately render poll results. To be a guest, all you must provide is a location. Your location will never be shared with anyone.

What's the difference between Guest and Full accounts?

There are two types of MapMyVote accounts, full accounts and guest accounts.

Full accounts are permanent, and once you enter your location, you never need to change it (unless you move). These accounts allow you to log in and out as many times as you want using an email and password of your choice. In addition, full accounts also allow you to add additional information about yourself. This information is used when users filter the demographic (i.e. all males, all people above age 50, etc.) If you opt to not enter some information, you your-self are not allowed to filter by that information.

Guest accounts are temporary and expire when you close your browser or become idle. They just require you to specify your location and do not allow any additional information to be added. This means that guest users cannot filter demographic nor will there votes be counted when other users filter by demographic.

How do I Signup?

Sign up is fast and easy. You can sign up on the registration page or simply when you respond to your first poll or survey.
