Summary<br />  We believe that it is useful for society to have an application that unites, in a single, neutral and civilized place, the stakeholders in the electoral process so as to allow multidirectional communication between them.<br /> We consider that it is necessary to have an online presence that promotes, in a single, neutral and civilized place, ongoing monitoring and debate about the government activity.<br />
