How does OpinionFirst work?

OpinionFirst is the central platform for modern direct democracy for every place in the world (Places). The platform is also available for making democratic decisions in a club, company, association or any other kind of organization or group (Groups). 

So, OpinionFirst can always be your starting point everywhere. The principles are easy:

①  Vote

You can quickly and easily vote on every important topic in your neighborhood, hometown, province, country, continent and even for the world. You do not vote with a specific party, but you freely vote on precisely those topics that concern you the most! You can also vote for proposals in clubs, companies, associations or other groups for which you are member. Only if you vote or respond on issues that concern you, you will have influence. 

It only takes a few minutes of your time to make a choice about any topic. And with your choice you can influence any proposal or decision that is important to you. That is having direct influence on decisions!

As a registered voter you increase the impact of your votes and immediately increase your influence, just as in any democracy or democratic environment. Your registration makes it possible to always change or remove your vote later. All your votes are anonymous.

Everyone can vote on OpinionFirst. Citizens or group members indicate together what is important and by their choices they will help their favorite proposals and opinion leaders win most votes. If you do not vote, then the topic might not be important for you and other people will determine which proposal is accepted.

②  Respond

Your opinion counts! OpinionFirst strives to capture every proposal and every point of view on any topic, from all places in the world and for all groups. In this way citizens and group members are informed and they can make the right choices. 

We invite experts, politicians, policy makers, professors, writers, journalists, managers, employees, members, celebrities, concerned citizens and everyone else explicitly to express their proposals or visions. You can respond on every topic with a:

Proposal

With a proposal you add your plan, idea, petition, solution, motion or initiative. When you add a proposal, you automatically become an opinion leader for your proposal. Everyone can vote for you and your proposal. The better you promote your proposal, the more votes you obtain and the greater your influence will become. Your electorate makes your proposal win.

360°

With your 360° you respond with your advice, vision, ideas, arguments, recommendations and other information. You will not be an opinion leader and voters will not be able to vote for you, but with your voting advice you can promote your favorite proposal.

Poll

A poll quickly makes the views of citizens or members of a group visible. Ask a question and provide several possible answers to find out how others are thinking.

Statement

A statement makes it visible if citizens or members of a group agree or disagree with you. Place a statement to find out if others agree with you.

③  Learn

With more persons voting and responding on a topic, more information will come available on that topic. Information that is not monopolized by one or few selected sources, but information directly available from everyone. 

The information and options are presented in a clear and structured way, which helps you quickly understand many aspects of a topic. OpinionFirst supports you with additional information for every topic, which is available under:
