Don’t just take our word for it. The following case studies provide a behind the scenes look at how YesElections is uniquely capable of managing elections of all types.
From reducing election costs to migrating ballots online for one of the largest labor unions in the United States and restoring trust in one organization’s elections, YesElections provided the utmost care and attention to all elections, no matter their size.
AAJ initially came to YesElections with two challenges. They wanted to modernize their Officers voting process at their annual meeting, but they also knew they only needed assistance in years where the election was contested.
Later on, AAJ was presented with an entirely separate challenge with their Board of Governors election. These elections took place in a single session at the annual meeting, were historically run using paper ballots, and required additional rounds of voting when a majority was not met. This unfortunately led to long sessions of manually tabulating ballots and even the risk of members and staff missing flights!
The changes YesElections implemented allows AAJ to have the peace of mind that comes with a long-term election partner on standby for any possible election. Members get the gratification of instantly voting and the support when needed to easily cast their votes for officers.
The Board of Governors no longer have to experience a nerve-racking wait for election results only to find out there isn’t a majority and they have to repeat the process. Our simple touch screen process took the entire process down from hours to minutes.
AAO-HNS needed to update their election procedures to improve voter turnout while finding the right partner who could design a cost-effective solution. AAO-HNS was offered additional services from their previous vendor as an “upsell” and was given the unfortunate choice of paying for improved service or taking on laborious staff time by performing tasks in-house.
The cost-effective solution allowed AAO-HNS to reduce cost and provide a better experience for their members. A post-election survey found and found the average member rated their voting experience a 5 out of 5.
Seward Park Housing Corporation’s annual election couldn’t have gone any worse. Its original vendor violated one of the core tenets of administering election: it failed to accurately count ballots, putting the election results in doubt.
Our first objective was to restore trust in the election process. To turn things around, we introduced various voting methods, including a special hybrid version and an on-site touch screen voting system at the corporation’s annual board meeting.
We modernized Seward Park’s Board of Directors election. Offering hybrid voting along with allowing shareholders to cast a ballot using a secure touchscreen device provided a state-of-the-art solution that was and easy to use. Residents loved it, and the election—while highly spirited and competitive—was a huge success. Contact YesElections today to learn how we can help optimize your next election.
