Vote Like An Athenian

Congress wannabes, here’s your chance! A new site allows you to make your voice heard on every piece legislation brought forth by Congress. E-VotingBooth.com allows you to freely view, comment and vote on the current bills up before Congress. The results of the vote are then sent to every legislator and the President before the final vote. This form of direct democracy hearkens back to the Athenian model where all eligible citizens cast votes on the matters at hand, giving each person a significant role in the outcome of what was selected and passed. While participating with E-Votingbooth may not lead to a pure democracy, it will certainly represent a new chance for political participation. (Togas optional.)
