Ciudadano Inteligente – Educate the Voters

Fundacion Ciudadano Inteligente (Smart Citizen Foundation) is a Chilean non-profit organization that was set up during that country’s 2009 presidential election campaign. The group’s website made information available about the individual candidates such as their curriculum vitae, their general political philosophy and their specific platform. Fundacion Ciudadano Inteligente uses diverse applications to foster transparency in politics and to support various forms of citizen involvement via the internet and other information technologies. Its mission is to reduce the information disequilibrium among citizens, political representatives and the market that currently exists in Latin America. The organization now hosts several websites that enable users to address queries to government agencies from a central location and to read subsequent responses in a database. They have also established a blog that offers citizens the opportunity to publish information and to express their opinions on political affairs. Another website offers potential donors an overview of various NGOs including information about their organization, what they do and their management. http://www.ciudadanointeligente.org
