DELEGATES from Poland dropped in to London’s East End to see how electronic voting works.
The visit follows Tower Hamlets council’s programme of the public voting on a shortlist of budget proposals in each neighbourhood in April.
The delegates, who included representatives from Polish local civic groups and the Warsaw School of Economics, learned how services voted for by East End residents are being run with advice from area steering groups which include residents as well as police and the local authority.
The aim of the visit was to gather knowledge of practices in budget-making from around the world, to take back to local authorities in Poland.
