Living Voters Guide

How would you interact with an Online Voter’s Guide that lets you register your approval by degree (with a slider) and add your opinion to others on an election issue?

CityClub of Seattle and the University of Washington’s Center for Communication & Civic Engagement and its Department of Computer Science and Engineering have collaborated to produce the Living Voters Guide, a web-based resource to advance digital democracy in Washington State. The time to interact is now!

With funding from the National Science Foundation, the online resource was developed to promote community discourse and deliberation on the critical ballot measures before Washington voters this November.

The civic technology is inspired by three goals:

– Restoring trust in our neighbors.
– Learning to trust our community’s wisdom.
– Demonstrating trust in Jefferson’s claim that an informed citizenry is the bulwark of a democracy.” Source: Seattle 24×7
