Vote Power – the more you give, the more you get
What is this “Vote power” thing anyway? Vote Power is a way to measure how much influence your vote has in the MapYourVote (TM) community when filters are applied. Filters in MapYourVote ™ are a way to narrow results down to a desired demographic of interest. For example, I may want to look at the results based on Gender, Age, or other voter characteristic. When a filter is applied, if you haven’t provided the type of information associated with the filter, your vote will be automatically dropped from the results. So “Vote Power” goes up the more information you provide, because it becomes more likely that your vote won’t be automatically dropped. With a high “Vote Power”, your vote is always considered.
