The intent of this poll is to assess what the core issues on the existing justice platform are to current viewers of the Justice Party Site. Most lines in this poll are taken from the existing platform(a few items were taken from past Green platform items or elsewhere). Some were truncated to fit one item per line.

Only the 15 favorite choices will win the poll.
The poll ends 11/25/2012. The poll supervisor is randall_burns@yahoo.com (randall_burns@yahoo.com). Contact the poll supervisor if you need help.

Give each of the following choices a rank, where a smaller-numbered rank means that you prefer that choice more. For example, give your top choice the rank 1. Give choices the same rank if you have no preference between them. You do not have to use all the possible ranks. All choices initially have the lowest possible rank.

This poll is decided using an experimental Condorcet-based method designed to provide proportional representation. It is assumed by the voting algorithm that you want the ranking of your most preferred winning choice to be as high as possible, and if two sets of winning choices agree on the choice you prefer most, then you would decide between them using the second most preferred choice, and so on.
