About PoliWatch

Transparency on Demand

About Us

PoliWatch places a spotlight on Politicians whether they are Candidates vying for political office, Parliamentarians representing their constituents or Senators whether Party-appointed or independent. By leveraging the power of technology and new media to drive transparency, PoliWatch’s mission is to give politics back to the people – to make it easier for citizens to learn about politicians, and to find and support political candidates and parliamentarians who match their priorities and beliefs. We want to help end the impact of the pathological relationship between big money donors, special interests and politicians on the political system and to create a more representative democracy with deeper citizen engagement.

PoliWatch uses data on political candidates and parliamentarians to help citizens participate more easily and effectively in the political process. We collect data, convert it into credible political information which citizens can use to help them find the best matches on their ballot, and the best candidates to support on the issues that matter most to them. PoliWatch’s crowdsourcing news media model allows users to gather, collate and share information on candidates and parliamentarians pursuant to PoliWatch Media Assignments.

PoliWatch is independent, non-partisan and for-profit.
