General Politics Discussion

I think we could also increase voter turnout if we extend the times we can vote. Electronic submissions (the machines we use now) help as well. It would be great if they showed up in more locations though to encourage people to vote. Where the machines turn up remains another nudge for certain types of people. But that makes running an election more expensive.

Online voting could change all that, but as Mark McCardle says it's basically impossible to make it secure.

Estonia has been doing Internet voting for national and municipal elections since 2005. Currently about 35% of ballots are submitted by Internet. There have been no demonstrated hacks to date.

But I agree with Dan, generally representative democracy works better, unless you have a super-informed electorate.
