Just three guys from Iceland. The site is independent from all political parties, companies or hidden agendas. It's just an idea a 22 yo guy in Iceland came up with and executed with a little help from a couple of friends.
It started with the 2008 US presidential elections. We were interested to see who would win the election if the whole world had a chance to vote. We are interested in the different cultures and their opinions on different matters. This site is our very unscientific attempt to analyze different countries and cultures.
Only once. Each computer can only vote once. Yes you can clear your cookies and vote again, but we have a script(called the Psychic Monkey) that looks for multiple votes and specific voting patterns and deletes fake votes before we publish the results.
Yes! We believe that anonymity is an integral part of controversial votes. Although we use IP Addresses to determine where people are from and to detect abusers, we promise to never reveal them to anyone.
You are! The hosting is paid for by the Google ads on the bottom of the site. All work is voluntary.
You can help by telling your friends and family about the site, blog about it, share it on Facebook etc. On the front page is a button called Share this. You can use that to give the site a vote on social media sites or send an email to all your friends to tell them about your site.
Sure. Send us a request through contact@IfTheWorldCouldVote.com or send us a message on Facebook. We are chatty guys and accept plane tickets to just about any place in the world ;) You can also get an interview via phone or email.
