Elections GO! (EGO) is a project which will design and build a digital platform with voter facilitation and mobilisation functions for use across the EU. The platform will include tools to promote voter registration, voter information sections and mobilisation options which will allow voters to suggest public policy ideas, comment on existing policy platforms and use voter advice applications to engage with parties and candidates.
The project is funded by the European Commission DG Justice under the Rights, Equality and Citizenship programme.
The project has three objectives, to:
- establish a best practice approach to the design of the political participation digital platform and communication plan through a review of the literature and engagement with stakeholders;
- design and develop the digital platform and communication plan with facilitation and mobilisation objectives;
- communicate the project outcomes to key stakeholders and the public at a launch event and through the project network after the conclusion of the project.
