Any member can call a vote at “Collective Agency” on anything that people here care about and is actionable. Here is how I did.

I outlined a quick chart with a problem statement, proposed solutions, and a place to tally votes. Simply walking around and telling people here about it seemed to be very motivating. We had 100% turnout for those who were here and knew about the vote. We even had one write in, Option C to get a second opinion of the best pest control solution. In just a few minutes everyone had cast their vote, and Option B won handily at 7-1-1. We keep the plants! We had a question of what to do that affected the whole community, and we came to an immediately actionable conclusion. So, if you see a decision that needs to be made around “Collective Agency” call a vote and do something!
