How PredElection Works
America’s only free game that lets you win money predicting elections.
Predict Elections, Win $$
Sign up once and play in as many games as you want, from predicting the presidential election to who will prevail in Congress and local races. The more you play, the more money you can win.
Friends can argue politics for hours without breaking the stalemate. Not here. Challenge friends one-on-one or create groups. It doesn’t matter who’s on the left or right, when the election is over, you’ll know who was right and who was wrong.
Seriously. Free. Totally.
Wagering on elections is illegal in the United States, but it’s not a wager if you can’t lose anything (we checked). We couldn’t take your money if we wanted to—but we don’t. Elections are full of tough choices. Choosing to play PredElection is easy.
Rules of the Game
Games with Prizes
1. Get Started
Download PredElection and sign up with your name, birthdate, and zip code. Details must be accurate to guarantee prize eligibility.
2. Predict Elections
In any game, predict a winner for each race and answer the tie-breaker at the end. 2016 general election predictions must be in by 11:59pm on November 7, 2016. Until then, predictions may be changed at any time.
In games with prizes, the player with the most correct predictions in the global leaderboard wins. If there is a tie, the player closest in the tie-breaker wins the prize. If winners tie in tie-breakers, they split the prize.
PredElection does not award prizes for group play but uses the criteria above to determine winners. Stakes of group play are up to you. PredElection encourages users to keep group play within the bounds of the law. Naturally.
What's in a Game?
More than you might think.
Who says a game can't be useful?
You don’t have to be a regular voter to play and win PredElection. But we’re betting once you start playing, you’ll want to answer the voting booth’s call.
That’s why PredElection is partnering with the web’s best resources to provide a simple one-stop shop for all you need to know about where, when, and how to vote, plus non-partisan information on who’s running.
Just because we can’t vote on our phones yet, doesn’t mean our phones can’t make voting a whole lot easier.
Can games change elections?
Research finds games can double political engagement. Yes. DOUBLE.
In 2012, NYU researchers partnered with MTV to study political gamification, drawing 140,000 people to a free online predictive game with prizes. Prior to playing, fewer than one in four said they were very engaged in politics, but nearly half became involved in a candidate or issue as a result of the game.
Game -- adj.
1. eager and willing to do something new or challenging.
With PredElection we wanted to make a fun and engaging game for political junkies as well as those who think the electoral college is a school out West. But the goal doesn’t stop there. After decades of combined political experience, our team was tired of the same old tactics failing to engage the 21st Century electorate. It's time for something new.
Who should get involved with PredElection?
If you’re passionate about increasing voter turnout, expanding interest on key issues, engaging millennials with innovative tools, or targeting and activating the disaffected—the feelings are mutual.
PredElection is the mobile solution for an electorate that needs mobilizing. The effectiveness of that solution depends on working with partners to help maximize its reach. We can't do it alone—this is a democracy after all.
