It helps you get real-time information on the voters of each booth on daily basis. Besides, all kinds of information & statistics regarding the voters.

The candidate will have information on the preference of voters towards a particular contender and party after a thorough pre-poll survey of the seat being contested with all the past results. With availability of contact details, date of birth and profession of the voter, the candidate can establish a direct rapport with the electorate sending personal messages, birthday, anniversary greetings with App that provides the political agenda of the contestant and its adversaries besides how he/she plans to tackle the long-standing problems of the area.
