There's no Wanna Vote audit currently underway. This page explains how the Wanna Vote reporting process works when one is underway.

If you haven't taken your Wanna Vote survey yet, head to to see how.

QR codes are a great way to transfer this survey data:
  • They help preserve safe pandemic distancing
  • They assure that users can be remotely validated as registered voters
  • They prevent bots from flooding the system
If there's a Wanna Vote Canvasser near you in person, you can submit your QR code with them in person. Otherwise, follow the instructions below to submit your QR code remotely over Zoom.

Instructions For Remotely Submitting Your Wanna Vote QR Code

1. Get your device(s) ready

  • Get your device with your Wanna Vote QR code on it (usually your smartphone, tablet, or computer)
  • Decide which device you'd like to use to sign into Zoom (it could be the same device as above or a different one). Make sure Zoom is installed on that device
  • It's usually easiest to use the same device for Zoom as for the QR code

2. Access the Wanna Vote Reporting Zoom Room

  • Click on the Wanna Vote Reporting Zoom Room link on your designated device.
  • Enter the passcode
  • If there is a line, you may be put on hold for a few minutes before being admitted to the room
  • We'll let you know the hours that the Zoom room is operating. Please only dial in during these hours. Sometimes these hours of operation may be restricted. This is because we are a very small operation and rely on volunteers for staffing

3. Submit your QR code in a Breakout Room with a Canvasser

  • When you are admitted to the Zoom Room, you will be asked for your name and then transferred to a breakout room where you will meet a staffer
  • Your staffer will work with you to find a way for you to display your QR code on their screen. They will then take a picture of the QR code with our Wanna Vote Canvasser app, which will securely send the QR code data to our servers
  • If you're accessing Zoom on the same device as you completed the Wanna Vote survey, your staffer will ask you to share your browser window Zoom and take a picture of your QR code. If it doesn't work, your staffer may ask you to zoom in on your browser window (either by going to the View menu and selecting "Zoom In" or "Control and +" (Windows) or "Command and +" (Mac)), especially if you have a large monitor
  • If you took the survey on your phone but are accessing Zoom on your computer, you'll be asked to hold your phone up to your webcam so your staffer can scan your QR code. Try to hold your phone steady
  • Other situations may come up. Your staffer will walk you through the appropriate steps or ask another staffer for help if necessary
  • Avoid other ways of transferring the QR code data (such as email). They are not secure
  • When you're finished, your staffer will instruct you to leave the zoom room by clicking "Leave Meeting" in the lower right corner of Zoom
