Community Board Voting and Dashboard
TLDR: I built a little webapp that lets community boar members, identified via their SMS number, vote durring community board sessions. The results are shown on a big screen with countdown clock for speaker, queue, etc.

The current voting system is hard to manage with some participants remote and some in person, counting ~50 people is not easy.
Everyone can text their vote (‘Yes’,’No’,’Abstain’ , ‘Cause’)
Use SMS so its easier to use for the less tech savy vs web app
SMS also can serve as identification and minor authentication of users
Dashboard shows countdown timer, queue to talk, etc.

Text to Vote
hosting on Lambda, seems like a good fit for the usage pattern of no interaction for majority of the month and then a few calls.
using S3 as store, db seems overkill
should be very very cheap, twilio is free to respond to text, lambda and s3, should be pennies per month if above the free tier.
See how it goes November 6th
Convert front end to React?
Create a admin system?
Web App for voting if need be?
