What is Digital Democracy?
Digital Democracy is often misunderstood as simply "voting online", when it can be used for so much more.
Effectively implemented, Digital Democracy:
is open to anyone who wants to take part
allows participants to comment and deliberate
creates outcomes that can be actioned immediately
builds trust and serves to educate participants on trade-offs and dependencies
fundamentally shifts political power to the participants

Digital Democracy Report 2024
This report, now in its fourth edition, tracks the development of digital democracy technologies and seeks to provide an overview of the various fields of application (e.g. voting, participatory budgeting, public consultation, etc.). The goal is to provide a repository for policy makers, NGOs and academics, as well as for the democracy software industry itself. This year, we have evaluated 21 eDemocracy tools from 17 countries.
