Engage with Voters on PlaceSpeak
It’s election season! This November, every municipality in British Columbia—and other regions—will be going to the polls. As a reader of this blog, you know the importance of engaging citizens and supporting them in the exercise of their democratic rights and responsibilities. Community engagement is a critical aspect of promoting this.
PlaceSpeak’s unique geo-authentication tools can help local governments to engage with voters in the upcoming election. Our platform allows you to connect easily with voters in your area and only your area. This year, PlaceSpeak is making available our premium package FREE to Chief Election Officers during the election period to support their community engagement.
Keep Voters informed
PlaceSpeak provides up to date accurate information about your local election. Use PlaceSpeak’s geo-targeting tools to make sure your community—and only your community—are notified about election happenings.
Increase Voter Participation
PlaceSpeak offers a two-way exchange of information, questions, discussion forums, polls and other creative tools. This helps to involve and inform your community about the candidates.
PlaceSpeak allows you to engage citizens from a shared geographical location and assign team members moderation privileges. It also helps to make sure that all team members are on the same page and effectively interacting with your community.
