Me and my Kamloops

Election 2020: New Interactive Website Launched to Help Kamloops Voters

With an election happening in the middle of a pandemic, we are not able to have a large group of people in one room for a public all-candidates forum. Other methods of communicating with candidates and getting the candidates answers to the issues are even more important now.

Kamloops Voter has created an online forum that has many of the features of a regular in person forum, with some features and additions that are only possible by using an online platform

With a regular in person forum, voters are given the opportunity to stand at a microphone and ask a question of the candidates. With Kamloops Voter, questions are written and submitted allowing people to take their time crafting their question. The website also offers the benefit of filtering all questions before they are posted to ensure that the conversation is constructive and positive.

Candidates can view all the questions that have been approved by the website administration and choose to answer as they see fit. This allows candidates to offer the best responses possible without being put on the spot.

Voters encouraged to view and ask questions, create endorsements for candidates that they support, participate in surveys, and vote better informed.

The Kamloops Voter website is free to use by all and is also ad free but does require that people wanting to use the interactive features create a free account to help cut down on abuse.

Background
