What is tapvote?
tapvote is an independent voting service that enables you to make powerful votes for the specific things you want to see in your community, city or country.
But I already have a ballot box...?
Ballot box votes are great, but because of their cost to organise they have some limitations:
- You rarely get to vote
- You don't get to decide the options on the ballot paper
So Tapvote enables you to vote for anything you want. And crucially, we authenticate all voters, so it's as powerful as a ballot box vote.
More than just a poll
Crucially - Tapvote is more than just a poll, it's a social network, it lists all the elected office holders in your area so you can tag projects to the person who you think needs to deliver it.
Simply search in the people section to find the notable public officials in your area.
Officials can then add it to their free profile as one of their commitments - to show they're on the case with it. And if you like what they're doing you can even show your support - or nominate them for a role.
Use it to get things done
Use Tapvote to prove local support for local projects in order to attract public funding. Use it to draw things to public attention. Use it to show exactly what's needed locally so that service providers and people looking for your vote, can rapidly deliver and earn your vote.
What is a tapvote project...?
A tapvote project starts with the posting of a short phrase (max 35 characters). It must start with a command (eg. make, build, deliver) and be no more than 7 words.
