According to The Daily Caller, there are no more excuses for not performing your civic duty: a professor at Clemson University is reportedly developing an electronic voting system that allows citizens to "cast their ballots from home computers, tablets and smartphones."

As Clemson’s chair of human-centered computing, Juan Gilbert has lead teams of students over the last 10 years to create an online voting system accessible at home or on the go that will be more accurate, have increased verification and make voting more accessible to people with disabilities by offering mobile and voice-command options.

The system will be downloadable via computer, tablet or smartphone, and be significantly cheaper and easier to use than conventional electronic voting machines, The Greenville News reports.

“Prime III is the world’s most accessible voting technology ever created,” Gilbert told The Greenville News Thursday. “And we did that in our labs.”
