The Voting Project will be a digital election to be run in parallel to the 2015 General Election. Voters will choose policies, not candidates. These might not be the policies on offer in the real election as they will be contributed by the public. They may be conventional, new, radical or reactionary, but will be real and from the people. We'll then sort them out, do our research and design a policy spectrum. People will then vote, using an engaging digital system. There won't be parties or candidates to wrangle over or align ourselves to. Unlike systems that match up people's views to parties, our results will show policy outcomes. We'll visualise the results in creative and interesting ways, both for individual voters and the country as a whole.
But, occasionally it's good to have some unbridled nativity.
