CHALLENGE

Fusion challenged us to create new ways to engage millennials in election season. With the most bipolar election going on in the background, Fusion wants to cover the story from multiple perspectives. Our team wants to shine light on the many problems in our voting process, without discouraging people to vote.  

PROCESS

We first researched on how much your vote might be worth given the state you come from, and made a simple quiz around that. With multiple user tests on our first prototype, we realized how it might discourage people to go out and vote. From there, we did more research on how the voting process is affected by your party affiliation and citizenship status. Also, we looked into how primary, state and senate election are affected in each state. From there, we landed on the concept to educate people about how they can maximize their political influence based on multiple input, and encourage people to get involved in politics beyond presidential election.
