Welcome to the official homepage of "The Third Vote"!
"The Third Vote" is an alternative to the present federal electoral system in Germany, which only is supplemented by implementing a third vote.
This third vote should illustrate the opinion of the electors to specific election topics in order to include a grassroot democratic component into the election. It represents the political opinion of the voter by letting him answer questions to certain political issues and finally goes to that party the voter concurs most.
Due to the fact that the electors decision gets more influenced by the personalities of politicians and the image of the party as by their own political opinion, the third vote represents a method to reduce the electors irrationality.
