Understanding the critical importance of security, voter privacy, as well as compliance with the U.S. Department of Labor and the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act is the hallmark of any productive relationship between an election management company and labor unions.
Of vital significance for most labor unions is increasing voter turnout and boosting member engagement. With an array of different voting options, including online, mail, phone, on-site or hybrid elections, YesElections works closely with union partners to identify which method will ultimately achieve best results. Additionally, YesElections’ exclusive technology ensures seamless integration with our secure voting system and member portals.
Elected union officers represent members in public and in the halls of power, lobbying for fairer contracts and stronger benefit packages. Not only do union workers rely on their leadership to fight on their behalf, but these are official positions required by law, further underscoring their importance.
The goal, of course, is to turn out as many members as possible in order to ensure as many voices are heard. Moving elections online has shown to directly lead to increased voter participation.
