ConsiderIt: Improving Structured Public Deliberation

Summary: ConsiderIt: Improving Structured
Public Deliberation
We designed, built, and deployed ConsiderIt to support
the Living Voters Guide, a website where any voter
could participate in writing a voters' guide for the 2010
election in Washington. ConsiderIt is a new method of
integrating the thoughts of many into a coherent form,
while nudging people to consider tradeoffs of difficult
decisions with an intuitive interface.
