Designing Voting Advice Applications: The Finnish Case

To identify issues with Finnish VAAs developed for 2019 parliamentary election, content analysis along with expert evaluation was performed. The results showed that the Finnish VAAs lacked transparency, user interactivity and visualizations that would allow for candidate comparisons. Based on the findings a new VAA design was envisioned, which consisted of two phases. The suggested design aimed to give users more power over VAA designers in the process and improve the quality of the voting advice.
