Democracy and Governance Surveys

Reach Citizens in Remote Areas and Conflict Zones

GeoPoll’s mobile research and engagement platform allow governments and democracy groups to reach citizens in remote areas or conflict zones quickly and safely, without the need for on-the-ground enumerators. Using GeoPoll, organizations can administer surveys and educational messages to extremely specific target populations, giving them the ability to quickly assess situations and act upon the most up-to-date information.

This real-time data collection can monitor municipal services, track political perceptions over time, and encourage government transparency and accountability. GeoPoll also has the ability to send mass one-way communications to targeted populations for informational purposes or following crises.
