OurSociety is a Free & Open Election Campaign Platform. Our Purpose is to empower people to engage in their local communities and beyond by removing the financial barriers associated with running for political office. Our platform is for free for all candidates to join and use to support their campaigning efforts. We are a non-partisan, 501c3 non-profit. Candidates receive public profiles that provide the ability to upload articles and videos detailing their policies, plans, and visions. All profiles are uniform in design, issue-focused, and centralized for the ease of access of citizen users. For citizens, we've made it easier and more convenient than ever before to learn about your candidates through our Social Value Matching. The data we collect will ultimately be used to identify collaborative, democratic opportunities – shifting the paradigm of democracy from rhetoric and showmanship to issues and data.
