Mathematics for e-democracy

edemocracia Mathematicians, statisticians and computer scientists from the Polytechnic University of Madrid have developed a system that will improve citizen participation from the next municipal elections in 2011.

The most direct and immediate application will be the so-called participatory budgets , with which it is intended that the voters decide the allocation of at least 10% of the budget of their municipality.

His initiative falls within what is known as e-democracy or electronic democracy, a term coined within the Minnesota civic movements in 1994.
