Swansea’s branch of 38 Degrees held their Hustings event to question their local candidates this evening. With so many questions and topics put forward by members, VocalEyes was utilized to prioritize which questions to ask. This is the first time that VocalEyes Digital Democracy has been used in this way and saw many people using it to assist with the tough decision of what to ask. Here’s the stats: 5 admins and 35 members contributed 62 ideas with 667 ratings, 9 replies and 118 comments, total replies/comments: 127. They also used the project function on VE to see how many of their members would attend. Here’s a shot of the event. Democracy in action!
