Thousands of association members vote from the comfort of their own homes each year, with little inconvenience to their daily lives. Given its success, and the ubiquity of digital devices, online voting is primed to become even more popular in the years to come.
Online voting is increasingly becoming the preferred method for member-based groups holding annual elections. Truthfully, we’re not surprised. From increased voter turnout, election costs savings and investments in security, online voting prioritizes convenience without compromising election integrity.
Elections are expensive endeavors. From printing ballots to mass mailings, the financial toll of operating an election can put a strain on any budget. Online voting can help save money.
Election security has become a hot topic in recent years, prompting public agencies to refocus efforts at securing voting systems.
Organizing an election is no small task. As some groups can attest, there’s nothing more deflating for organizations than to work tirelessly to get everything up and running only to see a small percentage of eligible members cast a vote.
Online voting has become the go-to election model for member-based organizations worldwide.
Private elections serve a variety of important functions. For the most part, these races will decide who sits on the board of an organization, the fate of a new union contract, or whether members agree on initiatives designed to improve the lives of the entire group.
