Build The Vote Minecraft project

Build the Vote

In a partnership with the non-profit organization Rock the Vote and SidLee, we designed a space within Minecraft called “Build the Vote” where people can learn about the US electoral process.
From October 26th to 30th, players were visiting the world. There, players went through steps that American voters take during the electoral cycle. They visited a replica of the US Capitol, where they could walk around the rooms and learn about the electoral process, register their avatars and vote on urgent issues of 2020.

The topics

Once the voting period is over, Rock the Vote and Sid Lee will be able to see how many people vote on each issue, thanks to an agency-specific plug-in created for the game. The tracking system records only one vote per player IP address. The NGO will then share the results on its social media platforms.
