Civic Engagement Platform Launched
Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett and state Senator Bob Worsley will formally launch www.azvoices.gov, the first statewide civic engagement platform where voters can rate pending legislation and discuss issues that impact Arizona.
Integrated with the statewide voter registration database, Arizona Voices allows only one vote per registered voter giving legislators an accurate glimpse of public opinion on any bill in their respective districts.
In addition to the ability to comment and rate legislation, the system also allows for citizens and legislators to post visionary ideas for the state and get feedback from the online community.
The media are invited to attend.
