Vote Hostage

Politicians suck. How do we get them to work for us again? Hold your vote hostage.

Current Solution:  Become disillusioned and fed up with politics.

Current Result: Voting doesn't matter.

Vote Hostage Solution: Assign your vote to a singular cause per candidate.

Vote Hostage Result: Candidate promises action or loses election votes.

MVP would be essentially a petition website with a few restrictions.

Holes:  

  • Attracting enough users to make an impact.
  • Ensuring hostage follow through.
  • Could inequality adoption of Hostaged Votes result in a "Ralph Nader" effect?
