A talk discussing the problem of walkovers in the Singapore election system. With walkovers, people do not get to vote and apathy sets in (has set in for well over 20 years now). This apathy is not good at all for democracy if people do not get to vote at all.

    Barcamp 5 at Singapore Barcamp 5 at Singapore Presentation Transcript

    • Hacking the Singapore General Election
    • Problem Definition: How To Get People To Participate
    • How Many Of You Have Voted in A Singapore Election?
    • Conjecture: When You Don't Participate, You Abdicate
    • Why?
    • Walkovers
    • Look at www.elections.gov.sg
    • Idea: 1. Since it is unlikely that walkovers will be abolished, can we have a ONLINE election for those whose constituencies did not get an opportunity to exercise their rights?
    • Idea: 2. Can we hack a system that uses social media tools – identi.ca/twitter.com, facebook etc to do something ?
    • Idea: 3. Crowdsourcing for election deposits
    • Idea: 4. ???
