Michael Allman, a House candidate in California, said Wednesday that he plans to institute a direct democracy approach if elected to Congress.

“Direct democracy is where I vote with the people,” Mr. Allman, a Republican, said on Fox News.

He said his campaign has set up a technology that allows constituents to vote on the issues or bills proposed in Congress and that he would cast his vote according to what the people want.

“If I don’t agree with them, ultimately they win. It changes the role of the congressman,” he said.

Mr. Allman explained that the system is anonymous, secure and ensures those voting are registered in his district.

“It goes against the voter registration data base, the same one the county uses, to make sure you’re registered to vote,” he explained. “It’s confidential. It makes sure all of the votes add up right.”

Mr. Allman is running in the 52nd district in the state, which is currently represented by Democratic Rep. Scott Peters. He is a former CEO of the Southern California Gas Co.
