Nonprofit organizations nominate one or more existing data sets that would be useful to the organization, but aren't currently available to the public.
The general public votes for either their favorite organization or the data set they want to see released.
OpenDataVote Partners will work with government representatives to publish the data sets that receive the most votes from the public. Nonprofits will be awarded prize money from OpenDataVote Sponsors if their data nomination wins!
