This video documents a series of design interventions that allow citizens to vote on civic issues within the urban context. The interventions were deployed between 2014 and 2015 on the University of Sydney campus and at the Concourse in Chatswood (Australia). The research was funded through the Henry Halloran Trust (sydney.edu.au/halloran/) and involved collaborators from the University of Sydney, the University of New South Wales, the Queensland University of Technology, and Urban Screen Productions (urbanscreens.tv/).
