The mission of evoteAmerica is to provide a technodemocratic alternative to our current 1% political party system by encouraging people to run for office as technodemocratic candidates.
If elected, technodemocratic candidates agree to launch and use an electronic voting software system (the "Evoting Service"). Like Bitcoin, the Evoting Service would utilize decentralized data storage protocols, including blockchain (1D ledger), graphs (2D ledger), stacks (3D ledger), and/or any other protocol for decentralizing data and preventing the hacking associated with centralized databases.
The Evoting Service would be crowdfunded, owned, and controlled by 100% of the American people (as opposed to a political party, government agency, or corporation). It would not allow the American people to autonomously control the U.S. legislative branch. Instead, the Evoting Service would operate within the existing framework of a representative-based "Republic," as set forth under the U.S. Constitution. No new laws would be required.
Using the Evoting Service mobile app or website, every American would have the power to propose, prioritize, debate, and vote on legislation. If a technodemocratic candidate is elected to the U.S. legislative branch, they become an "eRepresentative." eRepresentatives would still have to exercise personal judgment, but each would be accountable to the evoting results of their constituents.
The Evoting Service would provide all representatives with documented evidence of the majority interests of the American people, by state and district. For example, if legislative branch representatives were contemplating a new gun law, the American people would evote using the Evoting Service. If a majority of (for instance) Californians evoted “No” on the new law, an eRepresentative from California would presumably vote “No” on the U.S. congressional floor.
Alternatively, if a majority of Californians evoted "Yes" on the new law, an eRepresentative from California would presumably vote "Yes" on the U.S. congressional floor. By comparing documented evoting results to the actions of our representatives, both eRepresentatives—and political party politicians—could be held accountable to the American people.
