Albeit Matt Negrin of Fortune jokingly suggested replacing politicians with AI in order to better represent the masses, Colorado's Camilo Casas plans to have people vote on issues via an app, and represent them accordingly.
This is how it will work: If more than 50 percent of people in his community vote "yes" on an issue through the app, Casas will vote the same way they do. Only in the event of a tie would he be forced to make a decision based on his own beliefs.
In order to avoid fraud, Casas' team will vet signups on Parti.Vote against the Colorado Secretary of State's publicly available voter rolls. In the future, Casas told me he wants to utilize biometrics for verification, possibly using something like Apple's Face ID technology.
