Dutch Leading the Way in opening politics

An online voting guide was set up by a politically independent group that has influenced half of the voters in the recent national election!

The website operates by asking you a series of questions based on statements taken from the election documents of political parties in the election.

Once you’ve done the survey (along the agree, disagree or neutral lines) the site then ranks the parties according to how well they match your own preferences.

Wow! This is a great step forwards in the opening up of the process! I have long said that it is very difficult for the average person to really have any idea at all of who they are voting for and what the candidates represent. A tool like this would really help to point you in the right direction come election time.
