Scoop Citizen + NextElection

Welcome to Scoop Citizen – our Engaged Journalism member community.

The Scoop Foundation is working with NextElection as a tech partner to develop this service.

This will enable us to offer you access to some exciting new tools for participation in the journalism we publish on Scoop and The Dig. We envisage this will provide you greater opportunities for participation in our journalism and in deliberative democracy on issues affecting our communities.

We hope this important technology will also be adopted by other publishers and political organisations in the future.

Stay tuned for more opportunities to engage.
