Civic Tech: What Can I Do

civic_tech.png2017 marks the beginning of many things. For Innovate Your State it marks our 3rd year as a nonprofit dedicated to improving public participation and government outcomes.

We are inspired by those around us taking action for causes that are important to them. In response to the many inquires about how to get involved, here are a few ways to utilize civic tech to engage:

1. Make sure you are registered to vote. Our friends at vote.org make is super simple to register and check your registration status.

2. Interested in running for a local office or just wondering what different offices represent you? Check out runforoffice.org. They are working to build the first comprehensive database of elected offices. If you’re good at spreadsheets and finding information then volunteering an hour or two to help them is another great way to get involved.

3. Keep up with what is happening on your behalf on the state and federal level with tools like Marci Harris’ PopVox, an online platform that keeps you updated on bills before legislatures.

4. Take our survey to share your opinion with us on the state of government innovation to help inform our work.

5. Share Innovate Your State’s mission and work with your friends. Every dollar of tax deductible donation is much appreciated!
