MiVote is a platform for community decision-making that connects your community with your elected representatives.
We're not a party that wants to tell you what to do, nor are we a tech company trying to apply e-voting to elections.
Instead, MiVote asks you what direction you want your community to take into the future, issue by issue, and offers you the facts you need to make an informed decision.
For each issue, our world-leading policy model is used to understand the issue at hand. The MiVote policy team collects all the facts from research, publications, reports, etc, then consults with subject matter experts, then talks with representatives of community groups to find four potential destinations a community could aim for on that issue.
The information is all served up in easy to understand content, all filtered to reduce bias.
All the information provided is supported by the source material, which is available for you to see too - because when we say transparency is important, we mean it!
Once you've learned about a destination, you can decide whether you support that option, or not.
You get to do this for each of the four options, so you might support one, or all, or some, or none of them.
We call this a destinational consensus approach, which is another way of saying 'finding out what we all agree on, and then using that as the starting point to build the world we want, together.'
After you've chosen which of the destinations you can live with, you can check your responses, then submit them.
Your votes are cast to the blockchain, which means only you can know what you submitted, but everyone can see all the votes combined, without knowing who voted for what.
The destination that gains the most support above 60% becomes MiVote's position for that issue. These positions can then assist legislators to craft laws that take your community closer to the future you decided on, together.
MiVote believes elected representatives have a responsibility and legal obligation to listen and uphold the will of their people. The MiVote Platform has been designed to offer voters a secure, easy to use and ongoing opportunity to remain informed about important issues and ensure their voice is heard and heeded by those in power.
