Powering the World's Opinions
At CivicScience, we wake up every day trying to make it fun, easy, and efficient for people to influence the things they care about – like the quality of content in our media, the food sold to our children, the products in our stores, or the votes of our elected leaders. When you answer our polls, we combine your responses with millions of others and deliver them to the business and civic leaders that matter. We protect your privacy and anonymity at every turn, keeping only what you voluntarily share with us.
