YesElections' own Michael Caputo co-authored an article for the American Society of Association Executives’ site outlining the benefits of working directly with an election management agency.
Caputo, an election partner at YesElections, shared a byline with Susan Barossi, a partner at PKF O’Connor Davies, LLP, Accountants and Advisors, who explained the role of certified public accountants in the election process.
As noted in the piece, titled “How an Election Manager Can Assist With Board Elections,” election management agencies ensure associations and other member-based groups execute a secure and accurate election.
Here’s an excerpt of the article:
Association leaders are understandably concerned about board election integrity and security at all stages of the process. In the nomination phase, an election manager should be able to assist with the collection of paper and electronic documentation that associations require of candidates, as well as petition signatures supporting nominees.
Election managers can assist organizations with branded design and production of both paper and electronic ballots, as well as advise on cost-saving strategies for print production and postage costs. For online elections, an agency can set up a secure voting site or provide access via the association's online portal.
When discussing election security with an election manager, ask how member data will be collected, stored, and processed safely. A trusted partner should require a data backup that ensures election results are verifiable and real.
