Michael Allman says his platform of "direct democracy" sets him apart from the other candidates running for the 52nd Congressional seat.
At an event in La Jolla Tuesday announcing his candidacy, Allman explained how he would use technology to asses his constituents positions on major issues.
Allman says he has designed a software program that would allow voters to go online and voice their opinions.
The program will ensure that only registered voters can weigh in and also makes sure they're voting just once.
