Vote to Get a pothole fixed on Election Day: New York Times Launches new SeeClickFix text widget





Great news from New Jersey--The New York Times launched our text-widget on the homepage of their hyper-local sites, The Local. We want to thank the developers at The Times who worked with us to perfect the widget, making it easy to vote and report on non-emergency issues from The Local homepage.

In their

blog
, Tina Kelley from the NYTimes says , "And on this Election Day you can vote early and often if your complaint is the same as one that has already been reported. Just click on Fix This! from the existing list and your vote will be counted."


This is a great example of how the SeeClickFix text widget can be easily embedded into your site. SeeClickFix adds a dynamic layer of content onto your site that can help increase user engagement by providing a simple tool for community members to discuss issues of local interest.
