Can a website tell you which way to vote?

CBC Vote Compass

CBC news has created a free educational tool called the Vote Compass on their website. Developed by political scientists, this click-through survey poses a series of questions to you and then compares your views to the various platforms put forth by the parties. Taking no more than 5 minutes, the Vote Compass provides you with an answer to the question of who to vote for. Results include your political position, your position per statement as well as your picks for Prime Minister.

By ‘dumbing down’ the sometimes daunting task of research and reading up on the various political platforms, do you think this will increase the voting turnout? How will this affect the age range of voters, and will it increase the number of voters in the younger age categories?
