Poll description

Please rank the following ideas for improving the CIVS voting service. If you think an idea is bad, rank it below "do nothing ranked below this". You can also write in new ideas, but do check the list to see if your idea is already there. Your feedback is appreciated!

CIVS is an open-source project on GitHub, and you are also welcome to try implementing your ideas. If you're not happy with any of the language translations, please let us know by making a GitHub pull request or opening an issue there.

Note that some of these ideas have been partly or completely implemented. Voters can now change their votes; it's possible to send ballots only to non-voters; and there is more protection against ballot stuffing. Some ideas are impossible to implement without weakening the privacy protections of the system, like seeing the list of people who voted.
