Could they change voting habits?

This box shows the idea of "traffic light" labeling in the lower right corner. The logos come from various sources. ( / January 7, 2014)

Would you fill that 16-ounce cup with sugary soda if it had a red light on the dispenser? Or might you move to the faucet for water and its green light? Researchers tracked food and drink choices in a big Boston hospital and found that those "traffic light" signals influence choices, even for two years.
Its long-term change that many experts trying to reverse the obesity epidemic consider the brass ring. The notion of making the healthy choice the easy choice such as a traffic light system that doesnt require label reading has gained some currency.
The researchers reported Tuesday in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine that sales of red foods decreased from 24% of food sales at the start to 20% at two years; red beverages went from 26% of beverage sales to 17% at two years. Green foods sales grew from 41% to 46%, and green beverages from 52% to 60%.

Imagine if those lights represented a overall voting score? Civil rights, foreign policy, votes constitutionally, taxes, spending - things like that, and slap on a url to a NEUTRAL political site that tracks congress critters voting records.

What to do with them... well, are you defacing or enhancing a yard sign, poster or bumper sticker by providing this "extra" information? The ideal spot for them would be on the yard-signs approaching voter sites.

We could also get so good at producing and distributing this stuff in the opposition camps that a lot of it gets picked up and distributed as their own...

thoughts?, comments?, considerations?

I suspect some here will be against "enhancing" other peoples signs.
