In prototyping the whole of e-democracy we aim to develop all essential facilities and core competences, in order to produce a first functional toolset. Although other toolsets have been developed in the past, none of them was ever functional for purposes of e-democracy, because none of them met the overall requirements. Mark Murphy was perhaps the first to address the overall requirements in his “killer app” essay,[1] and the present plan attempts to address them practice.

Description:
Votorola is software for building consensus and reaching decisions in public. Installed in a local town or region, nationwide or worldwide, it functions both as a primary electoral system for nominating candidates, and a primary rule-making system for voting up laws, plans and policies. The technical backbone is a peer-to-peer voting mechanism that allows for recursive delegation and continuous vote shifting. This core-component is designed to be easily interfaceable with other components like discussionboards, collaborative drafting media, authentication tools, statitistic analysis tools etc. A voter list authentication through a neighbourhood trust network is already build in. http://u.zelea.com/w/User:ThomasvonderElbe_GmxDe/G/p/vohall
