The voting has ended.

Voting for PB2 is live! 

When you cast your ballot, you will be deciding how you want to allocate $20,000 of The Participatory Budgeting Projects' (PBP)'s organizational budget.

This year, voting is open to anyone with a demonstrated commitment to advancing equitable Participatory Democracy. This includes PBP staff, Board of Directors, Advisory Board members, Donors, Partners, Past participants of PBP trainings, and subscribers to our newsletter and other social media, etc.

Participatory budgeting—or “PB”—is a democratic process for sharing decision-making power. In the PB process, community members decide together how to spend part of a budget. When PB is planned with equity and accessibility in mind, it has the power to generate decisions that are more equitable and inclusive than the “status quo.” If you’ve heard about PB before, it was

probably in the context of a city or government initiative. But PB can work for nonprofit organizations, too one example is PB2.

Each person may submit ONE ballot. There are no age or other demographic barriers to participation. 

You'll vote using either SMS or access code verification in addition to your email address to help us verify voters and ensure each person votes once only.

You'll first be prompted to use SMS verification.

Thanks to the Stanford Crowdsourced Democracy Team for their work to create this digital ballot!

All PBP partners and supporters are eligible to participate!
