drcpt has no particular reputation at present
25% of people living in Switzerland are foreigners, this website allows them to "vote

An interesting project has now opened its doors - it allows foreigners in Switzerland to cast a virtual vote for the 2015 Federal Elections.
Obviously it doesn't count for anything "real", but I think it could give us a very interesting overview of how foreigners would vote if they were allowed to.

URL is : 25prozent.ch

You mean it gives an idea of how the people who a) are aware of this b) can be bothered to use it *might* vote in a purely hypothetical situation. Selection bias goodness

OpenData.chand specially make.opendata.ch is just a platform to discuss and promote open data projects. Although Mr. André Golliez is head of the board of OpenData.ch it seems to be indepentend of his company itopia ag.


It is Mr. Simon Perdrisat which is behind 25prozent.ch
