|[Nettime-nl] Netherlands March 3, 2010 municipal elections: voting to loose your voice for 1500 days|

Flyers where dropping as late as this morning in my letterbox of people asking my vote who I never heard of before; so next time we may congregate via Facebook or other social media to give some real meaning to democracy…. regularly over the whole period of four years to have a real exchange of opinions, to give guts to the idea of representation, instead of only mouthing the ‘D’ word during a few weeks before elections. There is more potential for participating in government in society than the casting of the traditional vote. [image of poster with caption] click web link to see it/read it.
