Reviews from Union customers

"We've received positive feedback from our members (voters) about how "easy" it was for them to vote. Our members especially highlighted being able to receive their ballot by SMS text, as many of them work in the field"

"There is so much you can do to customize your election. It is great for everything from a small election to convention-style live voting with many delegates voting with different levels of vote strength."

"ElectionBuddy was super easy to use and create new votes as needed, and the results can be displayed right from the console to the meeting. I would highly recommend it for conducting any type of voting."
