You can have real impact in your local community. Do more than hope for the best. Tell your elected representatives what is important to you by creating and voting for initiatives in PLANETCIVIC. The time for civic engagement is now.
PLANETCIVIC is a free, non-partisan civic engagement platform that seeks to transform the way citizens interact with their elected leaders. We also provide an opportunity for concerned citizens and mission-driven organizations to gather a countable following of residents behind a cause.
We empower you and your elected representatives to propose an idea to better your community and rally votes for this idea from your network and ours. Our system shows the number of ACTUAL residents who support or oppose an idea, which can be used to persuade leaders to act.

PlanetCivic provides a multi-dimensional platform to connect Governing Bodies with their constituents. We believe the facilitation of constructive communication creates a collaborative culture that will identify the shared goals of our community and translate into increased civic participation to achieve them.
Joseph Kostecki, Town Administrator, South Toms River
I like the fact that PLANETCIVIC allows the average person to bring up ideas others may not think about. The best ideas bubble up through collaboration with residents of the region and PLANETCIVIC empowers each individual to make their civic contribution. We're all in this together.
Len Resto, Councilman, Chatham
New Jersey residents now have a platform to request and find ways to help each other and share issues of concern, at no cost and in an easy to use platform. Innovative!

I'm 17, which means I can't vote yet. But I want to be heard now, because the decisions our politicians make are going to affect my generation. Participating on PLANETCIVIC made me feel like my friends and I can make a difference right now.
