All the Election Features

Regardless of the decision you have to make, our features make sure it goes off without a hitch.

Multiple Ways to Vote

Voters can vote remotely or during a meeting using their cellphone, computer, tablet or mail. Voting is completed using a simple, easy to use, tech-friendly ballot.

Customizable Ballots

Our customizable ballots allow for multiple vacancies, randomized candidate or question order, editing descriptions, highlighting amendments and striking out words. You can also add documents or website links.

Personalized Notice

Reach voters by email, mail, text message, or using your own website, e-newsletter or existing systems with a personalized election announcement for each voter.

Voter List Integration

Pull voter information from Gmail, Campaign Monitor, Mailchimp, Microsoft Excel, member management systems and CRM applications.

Candidate Profiles

Help voters choose by including a biography, vision, campaign promises and contact information. Upload a candidate photo or link to a video too!

Multiple Languages

Notice text, candidate descriptions, options, buttons, verification are customizable to whatever language your voters vote in.

Voting Subgroups

Limit questions to a portion of your voters. For example, only Freshman vote for their class rep, while everyone votes for the school president

Write-Ins and Comments

Allow voters to add a new candidate to the ballot, or allow voters to provide feedback - great for budget approvals or referendums.

Weighted Votes

Allow some voters to get more votes than others. Great for condominium boards or regional representation or proxy voting.

Voter List Management

Receive automatic bounce notifications for invalid or changed emails. Easily view which voters have and haven’t voted.

Voter Reminders

Schedule emails or text messages to voters who haven't voted to increase voter turnout without extra work.

Voter Security

Personal voting keys are created and used only once. Require a 2nd password or confirm identity by phone. We use 256-bit encryption - the same as major banks.

Anonymous Voting

All voting choices are confidential and cannot be linked to the voter for elections. And results can be hidden until the election ends for further anonymity.

Independent Verification

A neutral third-party staffed by accountants ensures fairness and helps resolve election challenges. Also allows voter and independent review and recount.

Email Deliverability

DomainKeys and Sender Policy Framework ensure email notices reach each voter and are not marked as spam.

Election Audit

Voter Ballots and results are observable and auditable to verify votes are correctly cast and avoid election fraud.

Reports and Graphs

View winners and results in easy to read summaries, pie charts and bar graphs. Analyze the voter list and conduct a voter audit too.

Enterprise Features

Multiple election administrators with multi-department election management. Automated signup works great for mutli-chapter organizations.

Single Sign On

Voters can use their organizational username and password to access their ballot, which simplifies voter list management for administrators too!

Member Portal Integration

Encourage voting by adding a voting link and a voter engagement widget to your website. Publish access to voting results on your website too!

“Gotta say this system worked like a charm. So easy. Safe to say we will be using the platform again.”
