Electorate.Me Launches Online Platform that Gives Americans an Enduring Voice

LEESBURG, Va., Nov. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With the November 6 General Election just around the corner, the launch of Electorate.Me ensures that voters will be able to shape the conversations about issues in their communities even after the polls close on Tuesday.  Electorate.Me is the new online platform which allows voters to start, participate, and shape the conversations about issues in their communities.  Unlike conventional social networks, Electorate.Me is organized around the communities that voters actually live and vote in – not just around the people they already know. At Electorate.Me, voters set the agenda.

With the launch of Electorate.Me, users can discuss the issues in their communities, share the conversations via other social networks, and invite neighbors to upcoming events.  The site harnesses the power of the social Internet to enable voters to be involved any time of the day or night – locally, regionally, and nationally.  Electorate.Me fully returns control of the conversations from the elected and the media back to the electorate.

Electorate.Me does not screen content or restrict the electorate from speaking up on the issues.  Unlike a letter to the editor of a newspaper, ideas are not thrown in the trash at the end of the day.  Unlike a personal blog, neighbors, candidates, and elected representatives come to the site to participate in the conversations. Even the traditional media visit Electorate.Me to find posts to highlight to regional and national audiences.

On Electorate.Me, the activity feed is customizable and filters posts and events based on the community selections of the users. Issues filters allow users to focus on just the issues that matter to them. A simple click on the star next to the community or issue will toggle on and off the filters. Users can also sort posts and events by most recent, most viewed, and most commented.

Electorate.Me is fully integrated with Facebook, and will soon integrate with other popular social networking sites like Google+ and Twitter. Future enhancements will provide increased user verification methods, robust polling features, effective petition features, Q&A with candidates, live chat, and much more.

When the polls close Tuesday evening, both longtime and newly elected representatives will go to work for their constituents.  Electorate.Me provides the electorate with a tool to effectively discuss the issues with those they have elected and, ultimately, shape the outcome of the next elections.
