Feature Focus: Reminders and Resending Ballots

April 9, 2012

If your election is not having the turnout you expected, it could be a variety reasons. If you are letting ElectionBuddy email the ballots, maybe the election start time was not the opportune time, and people first brushed off the voting link email. There are all sort of reasons why people have yet to cast a ballot. Luckily, we offer two different ways of reaching out to people who have yet to vote.

The first way is to resend individual ballots. This feature is most commonly used, when an eligible voter says that they never receive the first ballot. In your admin area, simply click on Voter List and Status to find the email addresses you would like to resend the ballot to. Beside each email address that has yet to cast a ballot, you will see the word Resend. Pretty easy.

The second way is to email a reminder. By using this feature, you can reach out to everyone who hasn’t voted with a custom message. For example, you might want to let everyone know that the polls are closing in 24 hours, so this is a last-minute reminder to cast your ballot before the election is closed. Similarly to re-sending individual ballots, you can access the reminder from your Voter List and Status link. From there, you can create your own message.

Well, I certainly hope these features help you increase your voter turnout and gives everyone a chance to cast a ballot . Happy voting everyone!
