Pools and voting

I can see a list of them in decrediton but where do I find a list comparing them for fees, uptime etc. And can I still vote if I use a stakepool or does the stakepool operator get to vote for everyone who uses their service?

no reply.? TeaTV Shareit

No, stake pools do not vote for you. Voting (in terms of Voltraire) will be a complete different thing.

From the concept it works very similar to staking but keys are different. Like having staking key, you will have a voting key. That means people can still delegate their vote to people but that has nothing to do with delegating ada to pools. It’s a concept that is known as liquid democracy.

Usually you will delegate your vote to certain “experts”. Explained in sources below.
