Expert support

Lean on our team to help craft high quality questions and design outreach campaigns.




Post individual questions and surveys along with background information to a continually growing audience of residents. Respondents create an account the first time they respond, which helps verify respondents and ensure no one responds more than one time per question.



Share your Polco questions and profile broadly - through social media, newsletters, on your website, and in-person meetings. No matter where a resident hears about Polco or sees a question, they can respond and you can have the confidence that no one's response is counting more than once.






View real-time dashboard of participation rates and local sentiment. See who you're reaching, who you're not, and how they feel about key topics and issues. See this information broken down by verified voters and all respondents, by age, gender, district or ward, and many more dimensions.
