We have aggregated, organized and brought together the entire electoral process for the voter and the candidate -- our mission at PolitiView.com is to bring the campaign to you!
Springfield, Ill (PRWEB) January 12, 2012
Poised to transform the political landscape, PolitiView has just opened for business. Accepting video content from candidates, political parties, special issue groups and ballot measure organizations, PolitiView.com is the web’s first and only video comparative shopping tool for politics.
With PolitiView.com, politics is not just the province of big-money players. Affordable monthly subscription rates on PolitiView.com allow candidates from all walks of life to wage a campaign and speak to voters directly. The site is an innovative, non-partisan, grassroots political tool that makes politics accessible to all voters and candidates.
According to the Pew Research Center, nearly 8 out of 10 American adults use the Internet.* And another Pew survey** found that during the last midterm elections more than 70 percent of those online were looking for political information.
But unfortunately for the voter, that information on the web is often diffuse and unorganized. Crucial information is not in a context that helps voters make difficult political decisions.
"Being a voter today is like being in a rowboat, in the middle of the ocean, with all that water and nothing to drink," says the president and creator of PoltiView.com, Susan Nightingale.
The site, which is free to voters, is organized by electoral districts and content is entirely video. So voters can go to their own electoral districts or any election that they are interested in, and see and hear from all the candidates who are running in a particular race. The campaign is actually waged right before the voter.
"It's here -- finally -- the level playing field," says Nightingale. With a reasonably-priced PolitiView.com subscription, candidates and campaigns can post all manner of video to convince voters to give them their support. It can include announcements, biographies, policy platforms, third-party endorsements, rapid responses, questions and answer, campaign events, debates and so forth. A subscription also includes five hyperlinked web addresses, which can take voters to a campaign website, political party videos; and even landing pages that solicit donations, volunteers and provide events calendars.
Voters can then click back and forth between all the candidates who are running and decide for themselves, with no filters, who would best represent them in government.
"We have aggregated, organized and brought together the entire electoral process for the voter and the candidate - our mission at PolitiView.com is to bring the campaign to you!"
Subscriptions are also available to political parties, special issue groups and ballot measure organizations. Again, voters can easily comparison shop for the parties that best represent their views, learn both sides of an issue and consider the pros and cons of complex ballot measures.
"We think that PolitiView.com has the power to galvanize our entire electoral system," says Nightingale.
