Despondent at how little citizens’ voices were being heard and how little impact the average person could have in the way society was being run, an Australian entrepreneur by the name of Adam Jacoby decided to stop moaning on Twitter and start doing something about it.
The result is MiVote, a voting platform, information platform, and political movement set on increasing the degree to which the will of people is being heard in Australian politics. Inspired by the success of Pia Mancini’s DemocracyOS and Partido De La Red in Argentina, MiVote has built a platform which was recently awarded the Grand Global Challenge Award at the Singularity University’s Global Innovation Summit (founded by the infamous Ray Kurzweil).
