  • A new approach to petition management. Verafirma is a Silicon Valley technology company. The Verafirma team has developed electronic signature solutions for major government and financial institutions. Our newest efforts, which we call the Democracy Project, will pioneer the use of electronic signatures for politics. Let neighbors and friends inform your vote through online social networks. End the practice of paid signature gatherers bothering people outside of grocery stores. Reduce costs -- a campaign&apos;s budget should be spent on education, organizing, and crafting quality legislation. Improve the quality of initiatives: an initiative should be put before the voters if enough voters approve iit because they believe it’s good public policy -- not because its sponsors can hire signature gatherers at $10 per signature. Reduce fraud in the signature process and use the latest security and authentication technologies. Seek informed voters -- no more glancing at a 10 page bill outside a subway station or a grocery store -- read arguments for and against before you sign.
