The College of Communication over at Boston University has launched an innovative new smartphone app, dubbed INVOLVD, that is designed to promote political engagement among millennial voters by giving them comprehensively researched and totally unbiased information about where the candidates for the upcoming Presidential election stand on different issues.

One of the reasons why some millennials don't vote is that they don't trust information being provided by biased analysts and media organizations. This is where the INVOLVD app comes in. The app allows users to select specific issues at which point they can read quotes and comprehensive analytical pieces pertaining to each candidate's stance on the issue.

By using information to promote political engagement, the INVOLVD app homes to drive millennial voters to the poll booths in what is being termed one of the most important Presidential elections the USA has ever seen.
