If democracy were to be invented today, what would it be like?

With Neocratia, groups can easily create virtual spaces to discuss issues, make decisions, and elect proxy representatives to public office.

 

1

Identify

Identify a legislative office where elected representatives govern, and where you are eligible to vote for candidates.

 

2

Mobilize

Get pledges from fellow constituents until you have the critical mass of supporters needed to elect a proxy representative to office.

 

3

Elect

Go to the polls, vote for the proxy representative of the group (it could be you!), and get him/her elected.

 

4

Govern

The group collectively tells the proxy what to do using online voting. Members of the group can be active or passive, voting directly or delegating their votes to others.

How are decisions made?

 
 

DISCUSSIONS

By allowing members to upvote and downvote threads and comments, Neocracy enables groups to engage in intelligent, trolling-free conversations.

 

ONLINE VOTING

Members can easily propose and vote online for ideas, initiatives, referendums, and suggestions for laws.

 

TRANSPARENCY

Members can view the votes and delegations of other members of the group, check who is leading the group and receive real-time information about any activity. 

 

DIRECT AND REPRESENTATIVE VOTING

Members can vote directly or delegate their vote to others. When members are too busy to vote, their delegates will decide for them. Some call this concept delegative or liquid democracy.

 

MULTI-LAYERED DELEGATION

Members can delegate to others they trust. Anybody can be a delegate. Delegates can, in turn, appoint their accumulated votes to other delegates. 

 

DELEGATION TO ONE OR MANY

Members can delegate their votes to one or multiple members, thus diversifying opinions and decisions.

 

TRUST

By being transparent, votes can easily be traced back and audited by any member of the group.

 

REAL TIMENESS

Members can change their delegates at any time.

 

IDENTITY VERIFICATION

Groups can set their policies for determining who can join. Verification options include government IDs, voter registry, social media profiles, and more.
