Abstention use cases

  • When you have an ambivalence position on the outcome
  • When you are ok supporting the most voted option from the collective
  • When you think you have a conflict of interest
  • Not willing to publicly position yourself
Abstention is also used when there’s lack of information to have an informed voting. Please, this should be tackled in the feedback phase.

Abstention means willingness to participate in governance (counting as quorum) without positioning on outcome. Aka if abstention wins a votation, the second most voted option is the votation result.
