The EDV project advances our understanding of citizens experience of televised political debates, when augmented by new digital tools that render significant patterns within and between debates that are normally invisible. Clearly, the project does not provide a panacea for political disenchantment or disengagement, which are rooted in multiple causes beyond the remit of our research. However, based on a clear understanding of voters information needs, and the principles of aesthetic and interaction design,
the suite of tools developed and tested in EDV contribute to the nurturing of an electorate, from teenagers upwards, that is better informed, increasingly confident and more engaged.
