Should communities use internet to vote on policy recommendations to our elected leadership and should it have a greater weight of influence
Given the technological advances in computing and social media it would appear that we are poised to leverage it to have public vote on policy that is being proposed in any given electoral community. Would we be closer to a purer democratic system? Do you know of a community that has implemented this capability and what are they seeing as the benefit or challenges? Would we even use this to vote or would it empower us to understand what we are allowing our community/society/government (local, regional and federal) policy to be influenced. What would the scoring model be and how to incorporate it into our framework?
