Vote in the Wall
EXPLANATION OF IDEA
Problem:People are not using their right to vote due to apathy and inconvenience.
Make voting as easy as… going to a cash machine.
The idea would be for the Government to partner with the high street banks to use ‘hole in the wall’ cash machines as a means to vote in elections. (It’s not as if they don’t owe us a favour.)
Once at the cash machine, the voter would insert their card and pin as normal. An option would appear on screen: Would you like to vote? Yes or No.
If the customer presses Yes a screen would display the various political parties. When a political party is selected a second screen with the candidates name would appear. Press Yes to vote. Press No to go back.
And that’s it. The vote would be transmitted direct to a secure independently monitored server (and not the bank).
The technology could also be used online either via bank websites or a bespoke Govt web portal or interactive kiosks in shopping malls etc.
Millions more people voting.
