  • 6 mins

 

In today’s fast-paced digital world, the traditional methods of voting are being transformed by cutting-edge electronic voting services. Our company is at the forefront of this revolution, offering two distinct, yet equally valuable, electronic voting solutions: Managed Services and Do-It-Yourself (DIY) platforms to assure the integrity, security, and anonymity of your vote.  

Revolutionizing Voting: Our Comprehensive Electronic Voting Solutions 

In the digital era, the essence of democracy and decision-making processes is evolving, thanks to innovative electronic voting services.  

Managed Services: Tailored Voting Solutions for Every Need 

Our Managed Services are designed for organisations that require a comprehensive, hands-on approach to their voting needs. This service is ideal for corporate clients, unions, and associations who conduct lives votes during annual general meetings (AGMs) to make crucial decisions, such as electing board members, approving financial statements, or even deciding on matters like strike actions. Here, we take charge of the entire voting process, from ballot design to eligibility management, ensuring a seamless and efficient election. Our custom ballot design is a standout feature, tailored to reflect your organisation's branding while accommodating any specific voting rules, such as eligibility strictly for certain questions. Multiple deployment methods are supported, ranging from secret password protected links sent via email for immediate access to ballots, to advanced voter authentication pages for added security. Regardless of the method, our aim is to provide a straightforward, secure voting process for all participants.  

Bridging Technology and Democracy 

At the core of our services is the belief that technology can enhance the democratic process, making it more accessible, secure, and efficient.  We're committed to providing electronic voting systems that meet the diverse needs of our clients. 

In an age where technology and governance intersect more than ever, our mission is to offer electronic voting solutions that empower organisations to conduct their elections with confidence and ease.

  1. Voting Period

The duration of the voting period can significantly impact turnout. Too short, and you might not give all voters enough time; too long, and the urgency to participate diminishes. 

Tips: 

  • Set a realistic timeframe based on the importance of the vote and the availability of your voters. 
  • Consider time zones if your voter base is spread out geographically to ensure everyone has a fair chance to participate. 
  1. Deployment and Authentication

How you deploy the voting system and authenticate users are critical for security and ease of access. Common links are easy to share but require other elements to make them secure. Multiple pins or unique links sent via email or text add a layer of security and personalisation.  

Tips: 

  • Use a secure authentication method that balances ease of access with protection against unauthorized voting. 
  • Consider using two-factor authentication for added security. 
  • Ensure the voting instructions are clear and accessible to all voters. 
  1. Number of Questions and Logic

The complexity of your ballot can influence participation rates and the accuracy of responses. Too many questions or complicated logic might deter voters. 

Tips: 

  • Keep the ballot as simple as possible while ensuring all necessary topics are covered. 
  • Use conditional logic to streamline the voting process for users, showing them only relevant questions. 

Incorporating these considerations and tips into your planning process will help you conduct an online vote that is not only effective but also encourages maximum participation and engagement from your voter base. Book a call to learn more about running your next vote with SimpleSurvey.
