OpenDataVote encourages citizens to get involved in the process of open government and cultivates government transparency through the release of data.

OpenDataVote is organized into three phases

Phase 1

Nomination

Nonprofit organizations nominate one or more existing data sets that would be useful to the organization, but aren't currently available to the public.

Phase 2

Voting

The general public votes for either their favorite organization or the data set they want to see released.

Phase 3

Data Release

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!
