This paper describes how the FlashPoll@Schools contextual polling tool could be used as an instance of furthering the democratic process in school, and in particular student participation and student democracy. Findings from two initial pilot tests of the FlashPoll@Schools tool in a school in the Stockholm area are used as backdrop for discussions on decision making, public participation and student democracy. The position paper open ups with a presentation for future work in the FlashPoll@Schools project in two intertwined veins; the development of the polling tool and pupil involvement in eDemocracy.
