This article elaborates on the use of data visualization to promote civic participation and democratic engagement. The power and potential of data visualization is examined through a brief historical overview and four interconnected themes that provide new opportunities for electronic participation research: data storytelling, infographics, data physicalization, and quantified self. The goal is to call attention to this space and encourage a larger community of researchers to explore the possibilities that data visualization can bring.
