Dotmocracy Handbook

Return to the Co-op Toolbox

Dotmocracy is a transparent, equal opportunity, and participatory large group decision-making tool.


Compared to surveys, voting, or typical meeting formats, Dotmocracy provides unique and valuable opportunities. In a Dotmocracy process, every participant can simultaneously present his or her own ideas anonymously in writing. The level of popular support for each idea can be quickly and accurately discovered through the dotting process. Feedback comments for each idea can also be recorded.
