VoteSwiper App for European Elections 2019

The VoteSwiper App is a phone application that helps people in their decision making process for the upcoming European Elections 2019, and hence aims to increase voter participation in all 27 European Union member states. Featuring questions around political, current and election-related topics, users simply answer “Yes” or “No” to around 30 questions before their answers are compared with the position of the running parties. The results show approval ratings for the different parties and where the user sides most. In addition to the user's individual results, they can view detailed responses from each party to all of the questions asked.

The Munich Hub goal of this project is to help people choose which party they should vote for in the European Parliament elections 2019. By providing easy and fun access to this information, the hub is aiming to raise voter turnout in all participating European Union member countries. The pilot phase has already seen more than 500,000 downloads and active users.
