Madison startup and CE member Our Ballot Box just launched its free, open polling platform for residents to vote their opinions, on the record, on the issues. Madison Alders and Mayor Soglin can also use the system to send simple questions to residents in seconds.
Our Ballot Box is a constituent communication system that represents a major step forward for Madison by answering the most important question in a democracy: “What do we want?” Astoundingly, as a democracy it has taken us up until now to create an open, verifiable platform for citizens to definitively voice their opinions on the issues and be counted.
