Civic Engagement with Google Maps

YXE Voices is a civic engagement platform to promote the sharing and discussion of ideas on ways to improve the city of Saskatchewan.

Each month YXE Voices asks a different question of the community, collects answers from citizens and promotes discussion through user comments. For example, this month YXE Voices is asking the citizens of Saskatchewan what are their important elections issues.

Users can contribute to the debate by completing a short form with their answer and their location. Contributions are then added to a Google Map. If you click on another user's comment you can add your thoughts on the issue raised.
