Problems and Purpose

Delegated Voting is also called Proxy voting or Liquid_Democracy 

Imagine delegating your vote on health issues to a trusted family physician. And that she gives all the votes delegated to her second year medical ethics professor. And by checking on your physician's web page you can see how your vote is being exercised on stem cell research, on liability insurance... And when you feel strongly about an issue, you can rescind your delegation with a click.

A direct vote overrules the delegated vote. It is also possible to change the vote delegation at any time.
