With voter participation at an all time low among digital natives is there a digital fix to a growing crisis of democratic participation? Richard Bartlett is a co-founder of group decision making tool Loomio and recently spent time in Taiwan where e-democracy is flourishing. Karl Kane is a Massey University lecturer in visual communication design and the director of the Design+Democracy Project which recently developed Vote Local to help young people identify mayoral candidates with similar priorities to themselves.
