As we know, since the past couple of years Snapchat has been making efforts to help all the young users on the platform to engage in political activities. The examples include the platform’s feature of voter registration, voter awareness, polling location tracking, and a lot more.
And now, the tech giant is ready to make another leap by supporting its young user base to become a politician. The ultimate goal will be to let the users become a politician and influence political shifts directly via the app.
There will be a “Run for Office” tab, offering users a wide range of important insights into the steps to be taken to get themselves nominated for relevant positions and ballets. In addition, these insights will also reveal the available local political positions.
In this mini tab, the users will also be able to find out information regarding the signature requirements and filing deadlines. You can also view the contact information of different local election offices.
Having all that said, it is surely a great push by Snapchat that can boost civic engagement as a political movement is gaining more fame over time.
