Stagger the vote, disrupt democracy: Nynke Tromp

"Our politics have turned into a gladiator fight, and we cheer for it."

Nynke Tromp believes that by having citizens vote on the same day, a media maelstrom is created — one that rewards buzz over substance, and encourages myopic goals and superficial statements from political candidates. In this talk, she offers a surprising solution: vote on your birthday instead. (Filmed at TEDxDelft.)
