The real question is whether a candidate and their platform can truly act as an effective proxy for the will of voters.

We let billions of dollar fly around the world daily electronically. But we still vote mostly with paper. And when we do use technological aids, it's done with notoriously insecure machines run by radical conservatives like Diebold (who do you think makes Hamilton's vote scanners?).

Even if it isn't binding, we need a system for polling on issues, not personalities. It needs the ability for massive secure polling, not just polling 50 or 200 people then multiplying those results. And it needs the ability for comment and input, not just a single binary yes/no.
