This is a trail question to show how VoteWrap can be used to allow Australian voters to communicate their Will to their elected representatives.

Please complete all unfilled mandatory fields:

1. Your Email address, Electorate & Name
2. How Important & Urgent this question is to you.
3. Your VOTE on the question.
4. Your Confidence in the question.
5. If you want to be a Representative for this question or if you want someone to represent you.
6. If you want to show others how you voted ( Not yet implemented ).
7. If you want to contribute resources.
8. And if your vote is Yes or No and you don't think you'll change it then Finalise your vote

Then submit your vote.

* You can only vote once. However, once you have voted use can use the same link to change your vote.
* To make the initial voting experience simpler the 'Representation', 'Secret Ballot' and 'Personal Defaults Settings' for 'Consensus %' & 'Voting Compulsion' have been prefilled. Once you feel confident about this process you can change these also if you wish.
* Once a clear consensus has been reached For or Against then the question will be closed for further voting. If circumstances change or there is relevant new evidence the vote can be reopened.
* As this question is for demonstration purposes voters are not required to provide verification that they registered to vote. When the time comes to communicate the Will of the voters on this question everybody who has voted will have to verify that they are registered to vote.

Variable Consensus Level
VoteWrap uses a Variable Consensus Level calculated from how Urgent & Important the question being voted on is to each voter because it has been observed that as something becomes more important it is better to have more people to agree with it. Otherwise, potentially 49% of the voters will fight against the result creating implementation difficulties or even the reversal of the outcome. And, the less urgent a question is the more time there is to build a higher consensus.
Variable Consensus Level Matrix
Importance *
How Important is this to you? The higher the averaged importance then the higher the % of votes needed to reach a consensus.
Urgency *
How Urgent is this to you? The lower the averaged Urgency then the more time there is to reach a higher % of consensus.
If you are directly involved in this then select one of the voting States ( Yes, Undecideds or No ) or if you want your representative to decide then select 'Assign Proxy Vote To Representative and your vote will be added to thiers.'
Clear selection
Confidence Level *
What is your 'Gut Feeling' about what is being proposed. This takes into account how confident you feel about a range of factors, such as: The people who are proposing this ( if you know them, or about them ); the soundness of the proposition; the availability & accuracy of supporting evidence, the logic of the arguments ... etc.
I offer myself as a Representative and declare that I'll faithfully represent the will of the voters who select me to represent them on this matter. *
If you select Yes then your name will appear in the 'Representation' dropdown list below after you have submitted this form.
Note: If you selected YES to being a Representative your Representation must be "Self" and, you cannot select Vote option "Assign Proxy Vote To Representative".
Representation *
If you don't have the time or inclination to be directly involved in this then you can select another member of this group to represent you. Note that you can still select a direct vote ( Yes, Undecideds or No ) or you can assign your proxy vote to your representative and they will decide how to vote. If you decide that your representative is no longer representing you faithfully then you can choose another Rep or just represent yourself.
Secret Ballot *
If you want your vote to be visible to the other voters then select 'Yes'. Note: Functionality to implement this has yet to be completed.
To help make this a reality you can contribute financial, material or your time and skills.
Financial Contribution
If you wish to make a financial contribution then you can pledge an amount here. Specific fund raising appeals are shown as GoFundMe links under this item on the Dickson Reps Policy page.
Financial Contribution Released
If you have pledged a financial contribution then you can choose to release a portion at a time.
Other Contributions
If you have other skills or resources that you wish to contribute to make this a reality then list them here.
Finalised *
When you are satisfied with your vote then select 'Yes' to lock it in. Note that once the majority ( more than the required consensus ) level have finalised their vote then this item will be deemed to be resolved and will be closed until such time as the finalised level falls below the required Consensus Level. Up till the vote is closed then you can re-open you vote by selecting 'No' to finalised.
OPTIONAL - Personal Settings
These 'Personal Settings' are used to calculate the variable consensus level & whether the vote is compulsory or voluntary. Unless & until you want to change these default settings then just scroll to the bottom of this form and click the 'Submit' button to submit your voting data.
Personal Settings - Consensus %
The Variable Consensus Level is drawn from the Importance & Urgency Matrix. The default % values are shown below. These values are calculated by totalling all the individual voter's % values and dividing that total by the number of voters. This means that there is no central control of the Consensus Levels. Note that each voter only has to set the 4 corners of the matrix and the other five values are automatically calculated by adding & dividing the the 4 corner values.
1. Importance High / Urgency Low *
2. Importance High / Urgency High *
3. Importance Low / Urgency Low *
4. Importance Low / Urgency High *
Personal Settings - Compulsory Vote
Not every question needs every voter to vote on it. Only those questions that are deemed important enough by the voters and have the time available to get everyone to vote need to be Compulsory. Whether a vote should be Compulsory or Voluntary is determined by the Importance / Urgency Matrix. And again it is the voters who collectively decide how the matrix determines if it's a Voluntary or Compulsory vote by individually changing the default personal preferences shown below. Each position on the matrix is then calculated one way or the other when more than 50% of voters decide if they want that matrix position to be Voluntary or Compulsory.
1. Importance High / Urgency - Low *
2. Importance High / Urgency - Medium *
3. Importance High / Urgency - High *
4. Importance Medium / Urgency - Low *
5. Importance Medium / Urgency - Medium *
6. Importance Medium / Urgency - High
Clear selection
7. Importance Low / Urgency - Low *
8. Importance Low / Urgency - Medium *
9. Importance Low / Urgency - High *
