Innovate and invest in a sustainable technology for Online Direct Democracy

This petition had 125 supporters

The government estimates that it will cost the tax payers approximately $135 million for a plebiscite on “Same sex marriage”. 

Why not invest that money into the creation of a sustainable and innovative system that can confidentially ask Australian voters this question AND potentially 1000’s more. 

Sometimes our voice doesn’t get heard and the Politicians who we trust with our freedoms and our government, don’t do what the majority requires/expects of them.

With today’s advancing technology, the government should invest in a system that allows all voters to be heard all the time, on every issue.

Governments don’t want to embrace technology and allow people to be heard as it will limit the power of their power brokers, vocal minorities & special interest groups. Yet formally embracing the peoples’s input would provide a valuable resource for the enhancement of how we are governed, it could give governments clear mandates on issues that they may not otherwise have been bold enough to undertake.

Let’s be absolutely clear, our Government is the MOST important institution we have, it determines who pays what tax, how the monies are spent, how the most vulnerable are looked after, laws that shape our social structure & society and much more.

If you think it’s important to have an active say in the way we are governed (and with today’s technology now we can) rather than just at election time – please sign this petition asking for the creation of an Online Direct Democracy voting platform and therefore make online referendums and plebiscites a daily tool of Australian politics.
