Democratic Replay: Enhancing TV Election Debates with Interactive Visualisations

Plüss, Brian and De Liddo, Anna (2018). Democratic Replay: Enhancing TV Election Debates with Interactive Visualisations. In: Proceedings of the 51st Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, 8-11 Jan 2018, Waikoloa Village, Hawaii.




This paper presents an online platform for enhancing televised election debates with interactive visualisations. Election debates are one of the highlights of election campaigns worldwide. They are also often criticised as appearing scripted, rehearsed, detached from much of the electorate, and at times too complex. Democratic Replay enhances videos of election debates with a collection of interactive tools aimed at providing a replay experience centred around citizens' needs. We present the system requirements, design and implementation, and report on an evaluation based on the ITV Leaders' Debate from the 2015 UK General Election campaign.
