Since 2007, Change.org has been committed to empowering people everywhere to create the change they want to see.

We’re excited to announce our new mobile elections platform--Change Politics-- that empowers every voter to make informed decisions on election day based on direct engagement with candidates, and the input of people and organizations they trust.

On Change Politics voters can:

  • Submit questions directly to the candidates, and upvote questions so that the most popular rise to the top.

  • Easily find endorsements from the people and organizations they trust most.

  • As the election nears, create a personalized ballot guide, powered by endorsements from their trusted network, to take with them to the polls on their smartphones.

Organizations play a key role on Change Politics. By asking candidates smart questions and making endorsements, organizations can elevate their causes in the electoral process. This is a great way to gain exposure with voters who support the same issues or candidates.  

Secretary Hillary Clinton, Governor John Kasich, Senator Bernie Sanders, Governor Mike Huckabee, Governor Jeb Bush, Governor Chris Christie, Doctor Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, and Mayor Martin O’Malley have all signed on to respond to questions submitted by Change Politics users.

We’re also partnering with a number of media outlets that will source citizen questions for candidates, as well as state and national organizations that will publish their endorsements on the platform.  

We could not be more excited about the promise of this platform to build a new source of citizen power, and, crucially, to build on Change.org’s mission to empower people everywhere to work together to create change.
