This all started with some creative think tanking. We asked ourselves, why don't more millennials care about legislation and government? Instead of answering this ourselves, we asked our friends and colleagues.
What we found out was more simple than we imagined. We rate the restaurants we eat at, our uber drivers, hotels, and cars. But we don't rate our elected officials. The media does, but the users of democracy do not.
So we set out to develop a way to rate our elected officials. On the journey, we interviewed elected officials and got their input, we cultivated a team and plan to develop algorithms and AI that translate legislation and compare voting records to user/citizen consensus. We even talked about how we can monetarily incentivize citizens to share knowledge and research about legislation with their neighbors.
We believe in this because we believe in Democracy.
What's the problem?
Generation X, Millennials and the post-Millennial generation make up a clear majority of voting-eligible adults in the United States, and past midterm election turnout patterns hold true, they did not cast the majority of votes November 2018.
Not only are younger adults less likely to participate in midterm elections, but Millennials and Gen Xers have a track record of low turnout in midterms compared with older generations when they were the same age.
