Delegatory Democracy


The person that best represents an individual is themself. But the legislative process is too time consuming for most people to invest the necessary time.

Delegatory Democracy balances this by allowing each citizen to keep or delegate their vote to any other citizen. Delegates can also keep or delegate their votes to any other citizen including other delegates.

The more votes someone has, the more votes they can cast.
