On Election Day, Elect Next has decided it was time for its coming out party.

You’ll be hearing a lot from the DreamIt Ventures company over the next few days, founder Keya Dannenbaum is scheduled to speak at TEDxPhilly today, the company is throwing a launch party tonight at National Mechanics and Elect Next has partnered with the National Constitution Center for a display inside the museum’s exhibit. The company also made headlines last month when it won the Judges’ Choice Award at the 2011 Web 2.0 Expo/NY Startup Showcase.

Disclosure: The National Constitution Center is one of our clients at Technically Media. Technically Philly had no role in the Elect Next/NCC partnership. 

Elect Next has most often been compared to a dating site, and its interface will look very familiar to anyone who has ever used a site like OKCupid. First, to best match the user to the candidate, Elect Next asks users to answer a series of questions from topics ranging from Abortion to Taxes.

After a certain threshold of questions are answered, ElectNext can recommend the candidates that align closely with your views.

 

Users can then see on a granular level what question they answered align with the candidate.

ElectNext has told Technically Philly that the results of the quizzes have driven people to anger and some even retake the tests to reform their views with their preferred political party.

According to a press release, ElectNext plans on releasing more data on local elections in the near future.

The company has strong Philadelphia roots and was incubated in the Wharton Venture Initiative Program, Good Company Ventures and is currently part of the current DreamIt Ventures class.
