  • Mobile is a Guatemalan platform that profiles political candidates, helps register voters, and fights corruption by enforcing transparency. When citizens contact candidates through the website, the responses are tracked and ranked.

A 10-question survey enables voters to identify the candidate who most coincides with their ideas, helping them to make informed choices. To date, CandiDatos has helped register some 10,000 young, first-time Guatemalan voters, and organised public forums to discuss corruption, as well as topics such as youth, technology and democracy; public financing of political parties; and reform of electoral law and the political party system.
