POLCO's Civic Engagement Platform helps local governments post surveys and questions along with background materials, helps make those questions broadly shareable, and then collects all citizen input and cross-references it against voter-files and other verification lists to produce sentiment and comment dashboards and reports broken down by district and demographics.
Cities can ask questions from across the policy lifecycle (general sentiment on parks or even non-binding referenda on agenda items broken down by district), and can share them out through all communication channels including social, and only have to manage the conversation and collect all organized input in one place.

Our desire to bring the process of effective public information and engagement to public agencies has driven our goal of blending the tools and techniques of the private sector with the unique needs and demands of public agencies. Applying strategic communications programs in the public sector requires a passion for the needs of local and state agencies to continually educate, inform, and involve citizens and businesses. Government officials and staff are dedicated to making decisions for the betterment of their city, county, or region. We wholeheartedly believe in this commitment and want to help the public appreciate and understand this desire to make tough decisions that benefit the greater need of the society in which they reside.
