Problems and Purpose
Involved is a subscription-based micro-polling software for government that allows representatives to send out single question surveys through their mailing list, social media and their app. Residents can respond in one click, leave private comments, and share with friends and neighbors. The ease of use and focus on a single issue creates a potential for viral participation.
Involved aims to increase civic engagement by making voicing your opinion as easy as possible. Many people may not even know who their representatives are, but are interested in taking thirty seconds to answer an issue that's relevant to them.

How it Works
Involved surveys piggyback off of a representative's existing followers through their mailing list and social media. Through word-of-mouth and strategic placements of the survey in local papers and facebook pages, the number of respondents are able to reach far beyond the initial seed of participants.
