College students would rather vote using their thumbs, according to a study conducted by telecommunications giant AT&T.
AT&T conducted the survey on one of the most politically galvanized campuses in the nation -- Lynn University in Boca Raton. American politics have played a major role at Lynn since last fall, when the university was chosen to host the last Presidential debate of 2012.
Out of nearly 300 students surveyed, 58 percent say they would use smartphones to cast their ballot if "mobile voting" were available.

Host Phil Latzman, along with a panel of journalists and political thinkers are discussing U.S. foreign policy - the subject of the presidential debate - as well as other issues important to Florida voters in this election.
During the previous debate, our Dispatches from the Swing State team met an interesting character in a Key West pub -- a local server named Patti Wilde who is originally from Cincinnati and is something of a local celebrity.
Or, as she explains it, "I mean, I used to be. I've been here 30 years so they go, 'oh, Cincinnati Patti's here.' But now they don't do that anymore. They go, 'Larry!'"
"Larry" is Patti Wilde's cat -- a very large cat that sits calmly on the bar stool wherever she goes.
A week from today, news outlets from all over the world are expected to converge upon Boca Raton's Lynn University for the third and final Presidential Debate of 2012.
And it looks like some foreign journalists won't be needing their pocket English dictionaries as much as they thought.
International students from more than 80 countries make up nearly a quarter of Lynn's student body. University officials say they've worked hard to locate students who will be able to serve as translators.
Florida's Attorney General, Pam Bondi, says she's not backing the state GOP's effort to oust three state Supreme Court Justices.
The Florida GOP is currently endorsing a conservative effort to remove Justices Fred Lewis, Barbara Pariente and Peggy Quince from the Florida Supreme Court. All three are considered by conservatives to be the most liberal members of the Court-- and they are up for a merit retention vote this year. This means Floridians will vote on whether these judges get to keep their job at the state's highest court.
