For example, quality design standards for legislative bills would block frivolous and pork barrel laws, and a competent ...more »
This idea is geared towards people between the age 18 and 28 (currently voting less than 9% of the time) so that their voices are heard and more accurately represented in the legislative process. Non-presidential voting issues would be presented in a persons newsfeed, similar to a sponsored add on Facebook, but the voting box would have a special "Government Sponsored" tag letting users know that this was ...more »
