California Report Card helps leaders stay informed about public opinion

Almost all California lawmakers are making use of e-mails and social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook to get in touch with the members of the publics and get feedback on their various plans and actions. But, these channels are often dominated by extreme views, which are habitually replicate material from mass media outlets, and lack genuine material from the masses.

The California Report Card is, however, an efficient alternative for those who are in search of a useful input for organizing public views.

The report card, which works on all types of screens, including smartphones, allows members of the public to participate and assign letter grades to key issues. They can also put forward new ideas that they want lawmakers to consider.

Speaking about the report card, one of the participants said, "This platform allows us to have our voices heard. The ability to review and grade what others suggest is important. It enables elected officials to hear directly how Californians feel."

The information gathered through this platform can then be used by public officials to get a feedback and take new decisions. They can also inform the public about their decisions through this new platform.

Anyone can participate and assign grades to the Golden State on diverse timely issues, such as education, healthcare, marriage equality and immigrant rights.
