OpinionFirst is about important topics that impact you and every other citizen or groupsmember. It is a direct meeting place for experts, managers, concerned employees, members and citizens on the one hand and voters on the other.
Every politician, policymaker, professor, specialist, journalist, manager, ceo, president, concerned employee, member or citizen can contribute with his or her vision and proposals. They inform you directly on their specific preferences, knowledge and expertise on topics.
You can read about their vision and vote on their proposals. With your vote you indicate which proposal you think should be implemented. You have direct influence because you are effectively involved in decisions that concern you! For free and with a simple mouse click or tap on your screen! OpinionFirst is for everyone who prefers to independently make their own choices.
Or a mix of both? With OpinionFirst:
Or traditional: You vote once every 4 years during the elections.
Or traditional: You need a voting profiler to choose a party or you vote for a party program you barely know.
Or traditional: You sometimes vote at the elections for a party you maybe agree with for just 50%.
Or traditional: You often vote indirectly via a party about a limited number of priorities that concern you.
Or traditional: You have barely or no influence because the party you voted for is not in the government or this party needs to change the original party program due to a coalition with another party.
Or traditional: You wait for what politicians and policy makers decide for you.
Or traditional: You do not vote at all because politicians are not really in touch with you and should listen better to issues that concern you.
Or traditional: You accept little or no democracy in many parts of the world.
Or a mix of both at your club, company, association or any other type of group? With OpinionFirst:
Or traditional: You have barely or no opportunity to vote on what you consider to be the best proposal. In general you have no influence at all.
Or traditional: At best, you are consulted in 'council' meetings. In general you have no possibilities to share your knowledge and preferences.
Or traditional: There are no proposals to choose from.
Or traditional: There are no proposals to choose from or barely opportunities to express your opinion.
Or traditional: You have barely or no influence because the management or board has all power. They take decisions without verifying what is preferred by members or employees.
Or traditional: You wait for what managers, the board or others in power positions decide for you.
Or traditional: You do not vote at all because this option is not available for you. Advice is often considered as a burden, not as a possibility for improvements.
Or traditional: You accept little or no democratic principles in your company, club, association or any other type of group. Others decide without consulting those who it concerns.
