Frequently Asked Questions

Concerned? Curious? See what others have been asking about

How are you sharing my answers with voters?

We aren’t! Your answers stay completely private and only your finalized grid position is shared with voters. We are not looking to create “gotcha” questions nor create news with your answers, only to share positioning so that voters feel empowered to vote their values.

What if I don’t like my position and want to change my answers?

You can change your answers at anytime and your grid position is recalculated every 5 minutes. The more questions you answer the more accurate your positioning will be.

Why did you choose to apply your data science backgrounds to politics?

We feel that democracy is at its best when the more people participate. Some voters put up a firewall to shield themselves from candidate outreach but then don’t know who to vote for when election day comes around. We aim to ensure that they have a safe place to look into candidates and empower their vote!
