Description. The service provides a platform enabling you to create a Polimeter, which is a dedicated subdomain on our Site where you can create, edit, track, and update a list of promises made by an elected official or institutional organization that is of particular interest to you.
Goal. The goal of the service is to facilitate the dissemination of factual information deemed useful for the good function of democracy, with the understanding that officials elected in a democratic manner are often chosen based on their campaign promises, electoral platform, and past work history. By compiling and making accessible factual information related to the performance of elected officials with regards to their statements made during the electoral process, it is our hope that our users can enhance the democratic process where it matters most to them.
