Me and my Brother

Brothers on a mission.

In 2020, brothers Mike and Dave Baumwoll sought to find a way to strengthen our democracy amidst a devastating pandemic, entrenched social media bubbles, and unprecedented levels of political polarization. At the heart of our democracy is the notion that voters are empowered to make informed choices about candidates and that candidates understand the issues that matter to voters. They created Rep'd to strengthen that connection and elevate our democracy.

Rep'd provides voters and candidates with a method of streamlined, responsive interaction during a time of decreased in-person campaigning. With so many questions about our nation's future Rep'd creates a digital conversation between voters and candidates so that voters ask, candidates answer, and voters are notified once their question is answered. It's that simple.

Our American democracy relies on a strong connection between voter and candidate. Rep'd takes that connection to the next level.
