rank a plank

Our "rank a plank" facility is a form of approval voting applied to the Green Party's platform by the public. To date about 60,000 people have ranked planks, leading to a clear understanding of how popular each GPC initiative is.

A paper analog, mark up and mail back, may permit offline feedback as well when resources permit. [Even a small number of these will help to establish what biases are arising in the feedback due to relying on online feedback only; Accordingly, it should be a high priority before the next Green Party of Canada Policy Conference.]

Both are important inputs to answer recommendation because they establish what language and values are resonating with the public. When providing Answers to Questionnaires for instance, a candidate will want to make reference to popular policies and justifications up front, and spend more time elaborating those that are less popular, or consider leaving them out entirely in that response.
