I think this will ultimately be one of the three winning designs for this "Loves" challenge. The show-of-hands concept not only is a clear expression of the spirit of democracy - it takes me back to my elementary school days. Thanks for the nostalgic glimpse into my past.

I appreciate the clarity and simplicity of your design.
I think it's one of the best in the bunch.

For me, they symbolize any democratic system whereby votes are tallied up and the one with the most votes wins. I wanted to challenge myself to create a design that was not necessarily specific to my own country, The United States of America.
Understanding the reach of this thing called the internet, I wanted to attempt a more subtle approach to this "Loves" and one that would have more universal appeal. Thanks for your comments!

At its simplest, the spirit of democracy is about being counted and being represented. In the most elemental way, this concept can be explained and comprehended by even our youngest children; the one with the most votes wins.
In the true egalitarian system, the whisper has just as much power as the shout. Strength is gained through participation. The lone, outsider piece is a symbolic reminder of the neglected vote, the wasted vote, and therefore, the vote not counted.
Oversimplified? Perhaps, but why not? Democracy should be this easy.
