Online Voting: A New Tool for Increasing Digital Participation

Online Voting: A New Tool for Liquid Democracy
Participants in such a system can decide how to address their interests. The idea is to make sure that the benefits of both direct and delegated democracies are available. Allowing people to have a say on issues that are important to them creates a flow between policy making and public accountability.
The term liquid democracy was first used in American online communities. The idea of a flow of interaction between politics and the public is not hard to imagine, but where exactly it came from is not clear. The aim is to achieve higher transparency in the political decision-making process.
Citizens should vote on certain topics directly, rather than accepting package solutions from political parties. It should be a more accurate view of the political landscape of the country with their direct participation. Voters would be able to make their votes count for the issues they feel strongly about, while leaving the majority of decisions to a representative.
There are many criticisms of governments and politics. On the other hand, politicians are experts in their field. They have devoted their lives to governance and have represented the interests of others.
Critics say that giving ordinary people more power could be bad for the country. People are concerned that the people are swayed by targeted campaigning, meaning that laws may be created that may not be in the best interest of the wider public. The internet is an essential part of liquid democracy.
