As proponents of civic innovation, we are starting from the ground up. Voting is the most basic process and foundation of democratic institutions and of the republic. We are on a mission to allow governments starting at the municipal, district, county, and up to the state level to experiment with different voting methods. The founding fathers did not specify the way America should vote because a few of these methods were researched and advocated for during the time of the founding of America. Other methods have been developed since then over nearly two and a half centuries. A few have been developed within the last few decades.
How much has innovation, technology, and an improved lifestyle affected most every industry since the industrial revolution really geared up around the time of the Civil War? We have so many wonderful creations and gadgets thanks to modernity. However, we are still using many of the same processes of governance since the Revolutionary War over two hundred years ago.
