Apple Rejects App for Verifying Pennsylvania Ballots

Avatar

Published

on

Efforts to reject some ballots in battleground states like Pennsylvania could determine the outcome of next week’s election. But a mobile app designed to help ensure that Pennsylvania ballots are getting counted has already been rejected—by Apple.

After almost two weeks of holding up the release of the app, called Drive Turnout, Apple on Thursday told the developer behind it, Ari Steinberg, that the app violates the company’s privacy rules and that Apple won’t release it. It was a curious decision. Steinberg’s app relies on information that is publicly available on a Pennsylvania state website, which allows anyone with a voter’s name, date of birth and county of residence to verify that that voter’s ballot has been counted.

Tech Selloff Follows Earnings: The Information’s Tech Briefing

If Thursday was party time for tech companies, most of which reported better-than-expected earnings, Friday was the hangover. Most big tech stocks tumbled, as the Nasdaq led the market down by losing nearly 2.5%. Yes, there is a disconnect there, although major tech stocks have rallied strongly in recent months, so maybe they’re getting hit harder by growing anxieties about Covid-19 and next week’s election. .

Investors also might be focusing on some worrying areas emerging for several companies, including weak user growth at Twitter and Facebook, and lower-than-expected iPhone sales at Apple. As one Wall Street executive quoted in this Bloomberg article noted, “the market has priced tech to near perfection and thus one fly—maybe even a fruit fly—in the ointment could perpetuate a selloff.”
