Opening the results of votes taken in municipal assemblies

Year of granting the aid: 2015
Realisation date: 01.04.2015 – 31.03.2016
Amount: 100 000 CZK
Organization: KohoVolit.eu

The project aims at improving currently very poor availability and openness of results of votes taken during meetings of municipal assemblies by achieving three specific goals. The first goal is to assist publishing voting results via developing the Hlasovali.cz application and its usage by representatives in at least 10 Czech municipalities. The second goal is to increase openness of voting results data in at least 10 major Czech cities where this data is already published by scraping the data, standardizing it and re-publishing it in our common database of parliamentary data with API and bulk-download option in machine readable formats. The third goal is to use this data to increase personal accountability of individual representatives by publishing analyses of attendance rates and voting patterns in the major cities where that data will be scraped. The analyses will be provided to regional journalists.
