Candidates Platform

Show Host

Our mission is to make it easier and affordable for citizens to run for local, county, and state offices, and to connect voters to candidates in a new way.

Democracy is for those who are involved, they are the citizens who lead us into the future, whether it is for the state legislature, Mayor's office, city council or school board. We believe if you don't get involved, you give your power to those who will.

In 2020 and 2021 we will be seeking funding through grants, crowdfunding and donations. We believe that Candidates Platform will be able to help take the money out of politics, take the fear out of running and bring all information needed for the voter to form an educated opinion, all on one platform.

The key to a true democracy is an educated voter not one who guesses in the voting booth. Candidates Platform gives easy access 24/7 for voters to know the candidate and to Know Your Vote.
