E-Democracy.Org builds online public space in the heart of real democracy and community. Our mission is to expand participation and build stronger democracies and communities through the power of information and communication technologies and strategies.
Starting with the world's first election information website in 1994 in Minnesota, today we host over 25 local Issues Forums in 15 communities across three countries - New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. In addition to these "online town halls," we promote civic engagement online around the world.
