NEWVOTE IS AN INDEPENDENT, NONPARTISAN E-GOVERNANCE STARTUP. NewVote was born of a simple philosophy: the world is better when we’re all empowered. That's why we've built an app, to harness the wisdom of the crowd and empower people to make a difference in their communities. We want to rebuild the relationship between everyday people and their leaders, so that we all have confidence in our democracies and the decisions they make.
