Ranked voting

If in a Direct Democracy elected representative still act on behalf of the people, writing the bills and advising the people, then how might representatives be more representative of the various political opinions? Most developed nations have multiple political parties, not just two. Protecting voters against the “wasted third-party vote” syndrome could be accomplished with ranked voting or alternative voting.

Or should a Direct Democracy do away with political parties altogether?

    John says, “What if we could have a negative vote? We could vote against a candidate we didn’t like. It wouldn’t be an affirmation for the other main party. If this were to happen, Trump and Clinton would have negative numbers. Johnson or Stein would be in the WH with 5% of the vote.”
