Description
DailyVote enables you to give feedback to politicians and public figures based on what you read in the news. We build on the success of the participatory news model by understanding who the major players are in each story you submit, and then allowing you to give them feedback (an up, down or neutral vote) based on what they said or did in that story. DailyVote has three major advantages over other civic engagement startups: (1) DailyVote channels citizens' voices into the news cycle by using news articles to deliver feedback to public figures in real time, (2) DailyVote promotes reflection and memory in politics by showing feedback to entities over time (for users as a whole and on a personal basis), and (3) DailyVote is fun and habit-forming; it's something people might want to do every day. There are a number of opportunities that build on these three basic advantages, but this is the core of what we intend to do.
