FAQ's - Voting Process
What am I voting for?
MiVote is dedicated to seeking feedback from its members on every major policy issue up for debate in Parliament. In the digital age, we don't see any reason why the voters should only be consulted for their opinions once every three or four years!
How can I vote per issue if I don’t know anything about politics?
We don't expect you do know every detail of every issue on day one. You'd probably be surprised at how much you already know, just from talking to your friends, reading the paper, and checking Facebook. But to make sure that you are able to cast an informed vote on any given issue, MiVote will produce a nonpartisan digital information packet about that issue. You can use the information pack to help you decide whether or not you wish to have a say on the issue, and if so, what you want that say to be.
Where does my vote go?
Every MiVote member's vote is equally counted towards the issue decision. If we reach a 60% majority on an issue, that verdict becomes the official party position on the issue, and any MiVote representatives in Parliament will vote accordingly.
How is my vote cast?
MiVote uses a blockchain voting solution, which provides unprecedented confidences and assurances that traditional online voting systems do not. Firstly, blockchain protects historical data. Each vote becomes part of permanent record that can never be lost, erased or changed. Secondly, blockchain provides transparency and integrity. While votes are anonymous, the record of votes is public, so it can be audited by anyone who chooses to do so at any time. Click here to learn more.
What happens if I change my mind?
One of our biggest frustrations with today's politicians is that they adopt 'set-and-forget' policies that end up being immune to new information. MiVote will periodically revisit all major issue issues with its membership to make sure that we are truly representing the will of the people.
