Biggest challenge: We need to build the initial website, prove the viability of our idea, and gain user traction, all before the November election.



LoveGov is building tools to help facilitate democracy. Our goal is to make it easier for people to stay informed and get involved in politics, especially young people. We believe that providing cohesive tools for accessing information, holding officials accountable, expressing views, and taking action, are crucial in making the political process accessible to the average citizen so that the American people can actually go about fixing the systemic problems we see in politics today.

The vision is to create a political social network: a one-stop shop for politics. We want to build the place where a citizen can interact with their politicians, government, and interest groups, from a local to a federal level.

Comments: We are committed to non-partisanship, government transparency and the right to individual privacy. We make a commitment to never sell our users personal information and have a simple privacy system where users toggle between public/anonymous. This way, every user can participate in politics and share their views, while knowing that they have control over what the world learns about them.
