Democracy seems to be the word for 2017 – Participatory Democracy is vital if we are to combat the challenges that we are facing as a planet on an individual basis.
MiVote is an information platform that presents you with a variety of perspectives on all major issues up for debate in the Australian Parliament and many others that affect our lives, via the MiVote App. The MiVote App enables you to make an informed, well rounded decision and have your say on where you want our country to go. Putting REAL change at your fingertips.
Where does the information come from?
MiVote employs an independent research team, free from political influence and bias. Our research team’s job is to unpack each issue in a way that is easy to understand and accessible for all Australians. We point out the consequences of voting a particular way. This is done by breaking complex issues into what we call Frames. By doing this, each member can consider each frame and vote on its merits.
For example, a MiVote member could be supportive of widespread mining exploration AND marriage equality at the same time. The current system does not allow this individualistic alignment with specific policies. For more see MiVote vs The Current System.
MiVote – Political Movement
The vote you choose to make on the MiVote App defines the position of the MiVote Movement on each critical policy debate in the Australian Parliament. Unlike current political parties, we do not have a position on any issue until the majority of members have told us where they want Australia to go. We the people, together, will determine our future.
Genuine representation for the will of the people
MiVote is interested in the step that comes before writing legislation. MiVote wants to know where the majority of people want our legislation to take us.
Let’s take a sample issue:
Should the national approach to mining exploration stem from a commercial or environmental frame? What would each of these choices mean to Australia, jobs, the economy and our place in the world?
As a MiVote member, you get to vote for the frame that most accurately represents the direction that you would like Australia to head. See how voting works.
