The bandwidth of voting
So US citizen are going to elect a new president soon. One way of looking at voting is that it is the transmission of information from the people to the country. So we can measure the bandwidth of each voter to the government. The election for the US president is basically a choice between two candidates, as all other candidates have basically zero chance of getting through. This can be represented using 1 bit, transmitted every 126230400 second. The house of representative is also a two party choice happening every second year, so we have 1 bit transmitted every 63115200 second, and the same for the senate. For the US federal government, this gives us a total of 1 bit per 25246080 seconds, which translates to roughly 39.61 nano-bits per second.
