Designing for Virality in Civic Mobilization

GPS and Peer-enforced Civic Commitment App

Visit Commit.Vote to check out the MVP.

The COMM!T web app keeps people accountable to their friends by publishing to a select group whether or not they checked in at the polls via GPS. COMM!T sends voters reminders with a check-in link that uses Google's Civic Data API to identify the appropriate polling place. Once a user clicks COMM!T, their group will be notified on election—whether they check in or not—and commitments cannot be revoked, though we provide a few backup options at check-in time to give users and their friends an opportunity to hash things out socially.
