Calculate the Return on Transparency of political campaigns

We recently started a project to support the Transparency Initiative of the Swiss Federal Council. See moneyinpolitics.ch and forum.opendata.ch for some background.

At the DINAcon HACKnight in 2019 (forum), we already invited you to dig into the national election data, and supported several interesting open source projects in the area. This year, let us look again at the state of "open source democracy" in Switzerland, and support impactful projects like this one.

In this quick analysis, you can see a "Centimes per Vote" rating of the available campaign transparency data (income and expenses) from moneyinpolitics.ch - as compared to the total number of votes from opendata.swiss:

Digging into political open data is more fun than it sounds - hope you'll join us for another election-year DINAcon challenge!
