Below are the Capstone project proposals for this year. You will be choosing which ones of these you prefer. Feel free to email the clients if you have questions about the project.
I will post a webform right here on this website this Friday Aug 29. So, come back then and submit your preferences.
1. Door-to-Door Campaign App
Right now there is not an easy-to-use, efficient, reliable app for political candidates or advocacy groups who want to reach voters through door knocking, which is by far the most effective form of outreach at the local level.
Whenever we have a candidate for city council or State House or State Senate, we tell them 75% or more of their time should be spent door knocking. The problem is we still usually have to do this with a clumsy system of spreadsheets and pens and post-door-knocking data entry. Our firm has significant voter data in house and there's no reason we can't build an incredible, simple, beautiful app that removes all the extra effort from door knocking and allows candidates and activists to focus on talking to voters and collecting data.
