  1. ^ a b Votorola's practice documents and architectural overview specify total reflection based on "vote mirroring" and "translational bridging" (part of "free-range drafting"). Vote mirroring was implemented in a rough prototype. Thus Votorola formalizes consensus of universal scope capable of guiding any decision system that is guidable.
  2. ^ The design was mooted to the TorCamp and APSA ITP mailing lists in August 2007: Open source legislation, community law-making Community law-making, a system based on recombinant text Could the public vote its own candidates into office? A quiet revolution in democracy.
  3. ^ Text mutations and flows are core to normative primaries; see patch relaying for instance. Non-textual candidates such as power structures and budget expenditure distributions are mutable through vote shifts.
  4. ^ See Stuff:Votorola/p/nB. It's sketchy, but follow the link to the mailing list and note that a "running prototype" was posted there using a MediaWiki postion draft as a kind of spreadsheet. It's since been lost owing to a port of the wiki database.

  13. ^ Infinite. Votorola's arboreal structures, as shown on the home page for instance, can accommodate any number of candidates.
