Welcome to ActiVote!
& thanks for running!
Our candidate survey is different from most. Your answers to topics that are relevant at the local and state level, with a few national issues mixed in, remain anonymous. Only your position in our policy matrix is shown to voters.
The users of our app, who are voters in your election, take the same survey, learn about policy and then see which candidates align with their values. It encourages them to vote for those candidates who believe what they believe!
We want your campaign to be seen and heard, while providing a platform for all candidates to highlight their individuality and values as a candidate. Check out where you compare to others in the matrix!
Voters Show up!
We did a study to assess the impact of the ActiVote app on voter turnout.
The short story is that every voter who does our survey is 33% MORE likely to show up to vote, this especially applies in off year and local elections! So participating in our survey will be a $0/vote way to get voters to the polls!

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!
