Voting Priorities System is an online voting portal targeted towards municipal or regional governments wishing to solicit citizen input for participatory budgeting during a designated time window. In order to access the online ballot, citizens must be registered voters of the municipality or region and have a unique voter registration number previously distributed by the government. Once logged into the online ballot, voters are able to rank provided government sectors, initiatives, or policies in the order of desired funding priority. After the time window for the ballot has passed, municipal or regional governments can utilize the citizen input to delegate funding for each government sector, initiative, or policy included in the consultation.
This tool is being produced by PROCERGS, a governmental organization of the state of Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil.
