What is Candidate?
Candidate is a web-based app that helps the user find a date for the upcoming election.
Candidate is designed to give the user a first impression of party policies across nine issues that matter to young people, and get them interested enough to find out more prior to the election. We were inspired to build a voting app aimed at young and first time voters.
The user is shown a number of policy statements that have come directly from the political parties to ensure an unbiased view. The user swipes left to disagree or right to agree with the statement; the user is then matched with the political party that best suits them based on the polices surveyed.
The categories have 7 answers to the same question representing each party's response.
We approached all registered parties that fell within our criteria at time of creation*:
- Currently in Parliament or
- Poll at least 1% (see Pundit) and Have at least 5k Facebook 'likes'
*The Conservative Party and United Future did not want to be involved with Candidate.
