Local Election Candidate Information Platform
A big problem in the U.S. is that people don’t have access to the information they need to make better voting decisions in an easy and convenient format. Our Social Value Matching changes that!
New Voices & Ideas
Our platform is free for all citizens and candidates! Our purpose is to empower more people to run for office in their communities and beyond. Signing up for OurSociety gives you more options!
Let’s ditch the old way of choosing our candidates by blindly voting. Together we can turn Democracy into a data-driven system that really works for the people, not just politicians and corporations!

The OurSociety Experiment was founded by Ron Rivers. After completing our initial MVP testing phase we open-sourced the project so anyone passionate about better democracy may contribute. Currently the project is on hold – we hope to revive it in the future and encourage you to touch base with any questions.
