Votes in Switzerland

Switzerland has a unique political system, a semi-direct democracy. One particular aspect of this are frequent votes on popular initiatives and referendums, usually occurring four times per year on the federal level.

The committees behind initiatives/referendums as well as their opponents have websites presenting their point of view, but those websites typically disappear at some point after the vote is over. This project tries to preserve those websites and other associated content (e.g. social media accounts).

Most of this archival happens through ArchiveBot and is tracked on these pages:
