CandiDate – “The Tinder of Voting”

November 29, 2017 citizens academy
CandiDate is an app that helps members of the public learn about candidates, measures, and other ballot items prior to election day. It uses the swiping design found in dating apps like Tinder, where one can swipe right if they agree with a position, and swipe left if they don't. Based on the users stances and beliefs, the app then calculates suggestions on how to vote for certain measures. In the end, the user is provided with a QR code that includes all of their voting preferences, that they can then take to a polling place and scan to vote.
