Stamford, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/17/2014 -- Voting can be so frustrating. Everyone votes in a candidate who seems to listen to the people and then, once in office, the candidate rarely seems to vote on issues the way the people who put them in there have desired. A team from Stamford, Connecticut are creating an iOS app– GET DEMOCRACY – that they believe will bring transparency to the political process and they have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the process of making and distributing it.
The Get Democracy app will ask users to vote on the very same bills on which elected officials are voting. The app then notifies users when the elected officials they are tracking vote and if they voted with or against them. Get Democracy will also track votes on issues over time and make it easy for users to see the percentage of times their elected officials voted with or against both them and the their other constituents.
The Get Democracy team wants to make a difference by radically enhancing transparency in government and making elected officials accountable to voters. The Get Democracy app leverages technology in order to give voters a tool to let their voice be heard. They're making politics easier, more straightforward and more productive for the individual citizen.
It was the voters that put elected officials in office and they are paid through voter's taxes. Now voters can hold them accountable.
Get Democracy will help voters measure the words of their elected officials against their actions in a time where some report that elected officials vote against their constituents up to 90% of the time.
Backers helping fund the Get Democracy Project campaign to the next level will be eligible for perks such as thank yous, access to Get Democracy, stress reliever balls, t-shirts, limited edition autographed and numbered iOS app prints and much, much more.
The Get Democracy team understand not everyone may be able to give money to help the Get Democracy Project, so they ask that those who cannot give monetarily help by spreading the word about the Get Democracy Project online through social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr or record a video challenge for Vine, Facebook or Instagram to invite friends to give to or share this Kickstarter fundraiser. Include #GetDemocracy in all posts.
