eTransparency Unveiled in the Tri-County Area

Apr 13, 2016

  The Peoria Area League of Women Voters has a new e-Transparency survey. Peoria Public Radio’s Tanya Koonce reports:


The survey covers about 40 local government's websites. Rick Fox is the eTransparancy project chair for the league. He says the 20 question survey looked at website details for each governing body including meeting schedules and agendas, financial information and Freedom of Information ACT particulars.


Voter turnout was 43.5% in Peoria County. That accounts for 47,616 votes cased. It also exceeds 2008 voter turnout in Peoria when Hillary Clinton ran against Barack Obama.
