AdvoKC is a Civic Tech platform established to help citizens engage, track and hold elected officials accountable.
We track promises made by elected officials, remind elected officials about their promises, fact check political statements and advocate for improved climate polices.
We rate campaign promises based on verifiable outcomes, not on intentions or effort. To create our promise meters, such as the Buharimeter, we pore through speech transcripts, TV appearances, position papers and campaign websites looking for promises. We define a promise as a prospective statement of an action or outcome that is verifiable.
