After many elections and lots of effort we have now reached nine million votes cast on ElectionBuddy!
To celebrate this milestone, I will highlight nine features I personally love about ElectionBuddy:
- The ability to update your voter’s contact information after your election has started. This feature is fantastic because it allows you to change an email address that might have been entered incorrectly to the proper email address. This feature helps increase voter turnout as more people can receive their invitation to vote!
- You can duplicate an election. This feature helps speed up the election set up process when you need to create an election that is similar in setup as your previous one. For example, let’s say you need to re-do your board election for the new year, all you have to do is duplicate your election from the previous year and then revamp it with an updated information.
- ElectionBuddy gives you the option to spoil your voter’s ballot! This feature is handy in cases where a member has left your organization while your election was running but they had already cast their vote. The spoil option allows you to remove the vote so that it is no longer counted towards your election results.
- This feature is small but I think it is important. You can add your logo to the ballot, giving your election a personalized feeling.
- Things can change and your timelines can shift. Because of this, ElectionBuddy allows you to change your election end time, helping to create a headache-free election experience.
- Two words – voting groups. The perfect feature for your school elections where you want people to based on their grade level.
- If a voter joins your organization after your election has started, you can use extra access keys to add them to your election!
- You can send your voters their invitation to vote via text message. If you have your voters’ SMS phone numbers and know that they actively use their cell phones, you can use this feature.
- Don’t have enough candidates to fill out your slate? No worries – you can enable write-ins using ElectionBuddy!
These are just some of the features that ElectionBuddy offers. If you have any questions regarding any of our features please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you for being a part of this milestone – we hope to continue to help you on your path to election excellence!
