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.

Only the 10 favorite choices will win the poll.
The poll ends in due course. The poll supervisor is Andrew Myers (andru@cs.cornell.edu). 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.
