John K. Westberg II from South Portland, Maine suggests telephonic voting:
For what it's worth, I suggest that telephonic voting may be more acceptable to the populace than computer voting. Everyone has access to a telephone, while a significant share of our American neighbors have no computers or facility with using them. Insofar as possible, let's use existing infrastructure and mature and easily accessible technology.
Please let me know if I can be of assistance in any way.
Yaron Holland suggests a Jury (or poll) direct democracy:
I suggest using a Jury System to implement DD.
The number of members in the Jury and the majority needed to approve (or disapprove) would be calculated to make sure (99.99% or more) that the same decision would be made if it was made by all the voters. This would enable voters to make a large number of decisions without requiring a lot of time. Each voter would be able to make informed decisions based on facts and arguments.
The current representative system would be converted to aid voters in their jury work, and to provide data from all sides to each vote. The same Jury could also be used to oversee government.
