The Essence Voter Hub was a nonpartisan initiative with a mission to increase voter participation. In the months leading to early voting and the primary elections, Mali led the Pixod team to build and manage a portal which aggregrated relevant candidate articles and pre-election stories. For the content managment team, of writers, editors, and designers, the new CMS required ease of use and to appear similiar or identical to their current management system. For security purposes and effective content distribution, the portal was built as a standalone system, yet needed to mirror the Essence UI and UX for the end user.
