About Open Democracy Manitoba
Open Democracy Manitoba (ODM) is a community organization that builds online resources with the goal of fostering government accountability, transparency and public education. Our board is volunteer-run and our websites are operated in the spirit of openness and community.
We’ve run WinnipegElection.ca during the 2010, 2014, and 2018 Winnipeg civic elections, as well as ManitobaElection.ca for the 2011, 2016, and 2019 provincial Manitoba elections. These sites have helped hundreds of thousands of voters research their candidates and learn about their local democratic process. We take measures to ensure that any and all candidate and election-related information is retrieved and presented in a fair and unbiased manner.
Open Democracy Manitoba is powered by the volunteer efforts of Andrew Burton, Kenneth Harasym, Kyle Geske, Mike Lennon, and Phanie Koncan.
