A nice example of democracy: voting with an SMS

Voting with an SMS is a very simple and yet powerful idea that enables lots of people to express themselves on current political decisions and issues. It is easy to implement and it is costless for the government. It was tested recently in Wales. I wish I could have something like that in Italy.

Voters will be asked to text “Wales Yes” or “Wales No” to 83010, votes will be monitored to ensure that no more than one vote from each mobile number is counted and each vote will cost 25p plus the standard network charge.
