One stop shop web interface
More citizens would engage with government if it were easier. To accommodate easily as many users as possible, local governments should offer a one-stop shop web interface. Government should also give citizens the option of receiving feedback on their service requests, including status change notices such as when the request is assigned, scheduled or completed. This will assure citizens that their participation matters.
Engaging more members
With the ability to contribute to the democratic process from the comfort of home, more members of the community can share their thoughts and ideas, including elderly and disabled citizens with mobility barriers. This process goes both ways. Online civic engagement platforms also publish civic data, such as laws and legislation, and disseminate information.
Not a substitute, a value add
Supplementing public hearings with online forums, surveys, and virtual podiums is convenient and makes participation accessible to more residents. Civic engagement software engages people in dialogue and encourages a constructive exchange of ideas that can be transformational.
