With fragmentation of national cultural spheres, what does my vote mean outside of  the microcosm of my peers and I? It signifies my preferences and my perceptions; an introverted base for an act that will only deliver if there is consensus.

With reference to Vicenc Alvaro's concerns below - harvesting votes early but with reviewing them for results would provide a means to count participation and could easily generate data that could spur voters and parties to greater participation and shame people living in low voter response zip codes. A key feature of the he system would be to allow a means to change/update ones vote - perhaps by invalidating barcodes of previous votes registered to a voter?

I wonder if this could impact the way people think about changing their minds on political issues; would they vote as soon as candidates were announced, on clear campaign bullet points, or would they wait and look to absorb more campaign information/misinformation down the line?

I would also say that a No Vote should only be allowed as a half vote towards a party - to provide a means to criticize the party who should have served your interests. To vote but not vote would be sitting on the fence & the message would be lost between the two extremes and not empower people in a party to fight for change. Feedback is an important part of all systems.
