VotONG is a platform that facilitates the process of appointing civil society representatives to various public institutions such as the Economic and Social Council (CES), the National Council for Combating Discrimination (CNCD), the Supreme Council of Magistracy (CSM) and other institutions. Election rounds will be organized via the platform, rounds in which non-governmental organizations can nominate their own candidates, can openly support a candidacy and can vote in open elections

VotONG Elections: 

Economic and Social Committee 2020

This electoral process offers Romanian Civil Society the opportunity to transparently appoint its representatives in bodies such as CES, CSM, CNI, CNCD, etc. It is proof of maturity and an important step towards the self-regulation of civil society. The VotOng platform offers civil society the chance to turn from observer into an actor completely involved in the process of appointing its own representatives.

Source Code

All code written by the Code for Romania community is open-source. We aim to build, contribute to and encourage the development of Romania's code library to increase the quality of software solutions in the public space and beyond. Open source development increases the quality of the digital infrastructure built by digital actors, reduces costs by reusing code in different contexts, increases transparency, eliminates reliance on single providers and encourages the strengthening of contributor communities among specialists who can report errors or improve components and functionality.
