User:ThomasvonderElbe GmxDe/G/p/frvp:Thomas's Proposal for the Free Range Voting Project
If you roughly agree with my position below, please consider voting for me! In case you have possible improvements, please express them on your position page so I can consider merging them into mine.
If you do not agree, please propose an alternative on your position page.
Discussions between different positions take place on the Metagovernment-List
For the current official strategic plan for this project in StratML see here
Support the creation and maintenance of an ecosystem of voting facilities, which are all inter-connected and communicating and therefore allow free range voting.
Every voter is free to use his/her favorite voting-tool for casting a vote and this vote is being shown/counted in every other tool too.
- Synthesis over either conflict or compromise
- Resilience in the face of conflict
Provide the necessary facilities in support of free-range voting, including a common voter register and supports for poll identification and vote mirroring.
- Developers of voting tools
I suggest "Metagovernment" as the goal of this project is entirely consistent with the goals of Metagovernment as a whole. Atm I own both domains: Metagovernment.org and Metagovernment.com. These would go into the property of the organization or the voters themselves, as defined in the domain ownership poll.
Create a cooperative or other form of management which is not dependent on a single individual or group of individuals. (Other more modern examples include the open company and bettermeans.com.) A well-crafted set of organizational bylaws should be able to make an organization which is controlled only by a consensus of its members. Determining the specifics is tricky in that the software for governance is still in developmental stages, but we can define stages of increasingly open control, if that becomes necessary
