The direct democracy application incorporates a geo-tracking mechanism to determine voting rights allocation based on proximity and time spent in a particular location.
Proximity-based Voting: The application establishes a proximity threshold for voting rights allocation. Within a 10km radius of a user’s current location, they are granted 100% voting rights. This ensures that individuals directly impacted by local decisions have the highest level of influence over them.
Gradual Decline in Voting Rights: As the distance from the user’s location increases, the voting rights gradually decrease. For example, within a 500km radius, the voting rights diminish to 1%. This allows for a diminishing but still present level of influence on decisions that have broader regional implications.
Local Decision-Making: The geo-tracked voting rights system guarantees that decisions with primarily local impact are made by the people directly affected by them. This ensures that individuals residing in a specific area have a significant say in determining policies, projects, and initiatives within their immediate vicinity.
Time-Based Distribution: The distribution of voting rights is also influenced by the amount of time an individual spends in a particular city or location. If a person spends 10% of their time in City A, 40% in City B, and the remaining time in City C, their voting rights would be distributed accordingly.
Dynamic Adjustments: The geo-tracked voting rights system is designed to be dynamic, adjusting in real-time or delayed as the user’s location and time distribution change. This ensures that voting rights accurately reflect the individual’s current circumstances and allow for responsive decision-making.
Reflecting Local Interests: By aligning voting rights with proximity and time spent in a particular location, the direct democracy application ensures that decisions made reflect the interests and concerns of the communities directly affected by them. This promotes local empowerment and a more nuanced approach to decision-making.
The implementation of geo-tracked voting rights in the direct democracy application aims to enable individuals to influence decisions in proportion to their proximity and time spent in specific locations. This localized approach ensures that local decisions are primarily made by those most impacted, fostering community engagement and tailored governance.
