    Can We Create An Electronic Voting System To Empower All Citizens To Participate In The Election Pro

    in Women

    When Election Day rolls around, most people choose to stay home rather than take advantage of the opportunity to choose the people who create the laws that affect their lives. Why is that? Have people become so skeptical and hopeless that they no longer believe they have the power to choose individuals who will represent their interests? What would happen if we simplified the voting process and made it possible to go online, type in your social security number, and cast your ballot over a 2 week voting period? What if you could go online and rate each elected official, judges included, and also see their rating prior to voting on them? Would that increase voter participation and change election outcomes?
