Votes should be listed in the order received, and not by the number of votes received. Those ideas submitted first, and having votes already, tend to attract far more votes than recent submissions with few votes. USDA is listing ideas in the order received, because they are well aware of the voting distortion using the current approach, on this site, by DHS.
