In the context of Digital Democracy, online participation platforms have emerged as innovative tools that enable citizens to participate in the decision making of their nation, region, or local government. Users can issue proposals and arguments in favour or against them and they can also support other people’s arguments. This paper proposes two alternative support aggregation methods and applies them into debates conducted in the Decidim platform.
