Votizen brings the authenticity of registered voters to social networks, providing a simple way to become civically engaged backed by the real-world power of a person’s voting record.
Votizen validates a user’s existing Facebook, Twitter, and other social media accounts as belonging to a real voter in the real world. It then provides tools to connect voters who share the same views along with a delivery mechanism to reach the voters’ specific elected representatives. Voters have a simple way to become civically engaged at scale, and elected officials have a way to know which online profiles belong to actual voters in their district.
Votizen contributed to the first bill driven into the US Senate by social media alone — no campaign contributions, no professional lobbyists and no public protests. We provide a way for voters to be heard and get results without going to extremes.
Votizen received $1.5M in Unattributed funding in September 2010.
