Civic Tech: What Can I Do
2017 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.
4. Take our survey to share your opinion with us on the state of government innovation to help inform our work.
