The new social media and empowerment platform after launching on Sept. 2, 2014 has delivered a new enhancement called the Ballot Box. The new feature that was announced Wednesday is an aim to measure and tackle the debate on how Americans should elect the President of the United States (U.S) as an important issue.
The Ballot Box is also a way to learn more on what is the national zeitgeist and empower users of the platform to debate the issues that really matter to them. The debate on whether the Electoral College should be replaced with the popular vote always comes with plenty of controversy and is contested.
As part of the initiative of the platform with Ballot Box they have invited experts from various fields to help deconstruct the debate around electing a president. They are the following: political strategist Dick Morris, New York Sun editor-in-chief Seth Lipsky, former Michigan GOP Chair Saul Anuzis and Dr. John Koza and others.
The founders of Saving America strongly believe that everybody’s opinion counts and that it is the ideal platform to engage in a meaningful discussion especially around politics.
“Every voter will have the chance to make a fully informed decision when voting. We believe that everyone’s opinion matters, and that it is up to all Americans, not just politicians, to decide whether this country needs to change its electoral system,” said CCO Eric Yaverbaum.
Other traditional social networks reward superficially users for participating on the platform and Saving America does use a digital currency to reward people’s interactions. In addition, studies by the Pew Research Center have indicated in spite of the novelty and cutting-edge social channels from traditional social media networks they have not advanced the ability to discuss topics around politics. Also it is in part due to the leaks by Edward Snowden about the actions of the National Security Agency (NSA).
The platform is very easy to navigate, research and post content. It is ultimately for Americans who are not with the Republican Party or the Democratic Party. It is for those looking for answers and tend to be the middle party.
The CCO Yaverbaum did assert after the initial launch the website would be added gradually to popular mobile platforms and most social networking channels out there at the present time. The goal is of course bring meaningful conversations surrounding topics of national interest, but attempt to bridge the polarization social media can have at times.
“We are excited to see what Americans decide, and happy to provide them with the best possible forum for voicing their views,” said Saving America CEO Courtney Jones.
