Ballotcraft Proud to Announce Public Launch of its Fantasy Politics Game

We’re excited to announce the public launch of Ballotcraft today.

Ballotcraft is a new way for people to engage with politics in a fun but meaningful way. There’s never been anything quite like it, so we’re excited to launch for the 2016 US elections.

Our goal at Ballotcraft is to boost voter engagement, particularly among millennial voters. Through our fantasy politics game, Ballotcraft helps spark voter interest in the political process. It’s similar to the way that fantasy football has boosted interest in the NFL, particularly among people who previously only had a marginal interest in football. By creating a new way of engaging with politics that is both fun and social, we believe Ballotcraft will have a similarly profound impact on political engagement.

This new version of Ballotcraft builds upon our beta with several new features:

Forum
Ballotcraft players are knowledgeable and opinionated about politics, and the Forum is a place for them to connect with one another. Have thoughts on the 2016 election? Post them to our Forum and start a conversation!

We will also be hosting Ask Me Anything (AMA) sessions with various political figures on our Forum soon. Stay tuned!

Status Tiers
Players now earn a Status Tier of either Gold, Silver, or Bronze based on their performance in Ballotcraft, and they can join “skill” games that consist of only players in the same Status Tier. This makes the games more fun and competitive.

Election Odds Explorer
You can now easily browse the historical odds of events on Ballotcraft.

Redesign
We’ve completely overhauled the design of Ballotcraft to be cleaner and more intuitive to navigate.

We hope you enjoy Ballotcraft. If you have any feedback, we’d love to hear from you. Shoot us an email at contact@ballotcraft.com.
