Go LIVE and Vote!

Nov 4, 2016 · 2 min read

As a platform that allows anyone to broadcast their perspective, from important, relevant issues to what’s happening in everyday life, we wanted to give you something fun in the time leading up to Election Day in the U.S. For the next week, you can broadcast with a Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump mask when you go live in selfie mode. These are available on iOS only.

We hope this is an entertaining way to have conversations and raise awareness around the election and the importance of voting.

Live video continues to be an important way for anyone, including our elected representatives, to share their point of view on important issues and invite everyone to be a part of the conversation. From larger moments like #NoBillNoBreak to everyday activities like local town halls, we’re proud of the role live video continues to play in shaping the political process.

These Election Day masks are a lighthearted example of the types of tools our team is working on to help you create compelling live video. We’re excited to bring you more advanced tools soon.

Check out @gov on Twitter for more information on #ElectionDay and don’t forget to vote!

Much love,

Team Periscope
