AskThem Is Being Redesigned for 2018 Midterms

The open-source, open-data, non-profit AskThem Q&A platform is undergoing a volunteer redesign (!) for public accountability around the 2018 U.S. midterm elections. The website is going offline for the summer, ahead of re-launch, date to be announced.

Same with PPF’s deprecated website OpenGovernment.org, whose open-source GovKit tech is being retired.

We’re excited to show what we’re building for continual public conversation with candidates in every state and Congressional district and more.

Sample question page created by widget, for a member of GOP Oversight Cmte.

Questions or comments, email David Moore, AskThem’s Director: david at ppolitics.org, or I’m easily reachable on Twitter, @ppolitics.

Rails programmers, web designers, are you available to help with the volunteer redesign? We’re just a couple of folks.

Get in touch, simply email: david at ppolitics.org, or DM us on Twttr: @AskThemPPF, or jump in to our new GitHub repo. Exciting stuff, there.

More to come on dev priorities and front-end opportunities. Background on AskThem’s unique strategy for re-engagement (Jan. 2017).

Questions welcome, thank you for using OpenGovernment and AskThem over the years.
