Donate Today, E-Democracy's 20th Year

โ€” End of the Year Pledge Drive

20th Anniversary

Donate today to keep this civic engine roaring or make an awesome one-time donation.

In 1994, volunteers with Minnesota E-Democracy launched the world's first election information website.

As one of the first civic technology projects in the world, we support vital global knowledge exchange and lesson sharing in addition to the one of a kind local online civic engagement online built on inclusion, open source and Creative Commons.

Help us continue to support your local forum and our global online communities of practice by making a donation!
