SocraticGadfly: Online democracy hits EU

Online democracy hits EU

It’s a minor issue, to be sure, but EU residents can vote online for a new design of a 2-euro (€2) coin.

The plus side is, this is a way to create participatory democracy. The flip side is, I don’t know how much the EU has done to prevent online ballot-box stuffing, etc. But, it’s good to start with something like this as a learning experience.
