LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas startup NowCrowd, the first crowd-avoidance app that helps users safely social distance with real-time information, will provide hourly updates on wait times and line sizes at all 31 polling locations throughout Clark County. Beginning with early voting on Oct. 17, users can check the app before heading to the polls in order to determine the least crowded time to vote, allowing Las Vegans to stay safe this election season.

“When we created NowCrowd the goal was to give Las Vegas a way to feel safe when leaving the house and with the election happening during a pandemic, we knew it was more important than ever to include polling locations on the app,” said NowCrowd co-founder Jessica Marshall. “We know how critical this particular election is and our primary objective is to get Las Vegans to vote by helping them stay safe.”

Throughout early voting and on election day, a NowCrowd representative will be outside of each voting site, posting photos and videos of the line and updating wait times every hour as well as indicating whether the designated location is crowded, somewhat crowded or not crowded. The app will feature a toggle-on filter that shows all polling locations on the map, allowing users to view the photos and videos at all sites and decide the best time and place to vote.
