You Can Register to Vote at 30,000 Feet Now

Thanks to a collaboration with PromoJam and Rock the Vote, Virgin America passengers will be able to register to vote while flying. In theory, you just point your smartphone at the touchscreen and fill out a form. If that sounds too good to be true, well, it sort of is.

First off, you have to pay for Gogo in-flight Wi-Fi, which is a) expensive, and b) terrible. Also, as you can see in the screenshot, they'll encourage you to donate to Rock the Vote, but feel free to ignore that. So it's not as convenient as one would like, but all that really matters is getting voters to the polls in November. Even if it means using QR codes. [Virgin America via The Next Web]
