Boost member engagement and participation in your
Leveraging secure online voting, associations can increase member participation in decision making and reduce both operational costs and the time used on organizing and running elections.
Make it easy for members to take part
Whether national, regional, or global, professional bodies or industry specific trade
associations often serve members who are dispersed and have different technical capabilities and accessibility needs. This makes it hard for everyone to have their voice heard and take part in annual general assemblies, elections, and collaborative decision-making, all of which are essential for the articles of association that define their governance.
Our election technology changes this by enabling everyone to take part and vote, no matter where they are or which device they use. Whether your members choose to participate in-person or remotely, our technology applies the same principles of security, auditability, and integrity, ensuring that outcomes of votes are accurate , accepted by all, and proven.
Save cost and free up precious time
Making it possible for your members to vote online not only increases participation, but also reduces the costs associated with renting physical venues, travel, and distributing physical voting materials. Moreover, it frees up administrative time and enables associations to set up and run elections much faster. This means members can be consulted more regularly rather than waiting for annual or bi-annual events.
Voting within associations is often made complex through weighted votes that represent the shares or voting powers of individual members. Our technology enables weighted vote calculations, ranked votes, instant run-off voting, and the management of different voting groups all within a single election. That means complex and often error-prone calculations are computed quickly and accurately, with detailed results reporting instantly available.

Lower administrative costs
Online voting in associations drives consistent operational cost reduction, e.g. by eliminating the need to print voting materials or travel to vote in person. It can also lead to significant productivity gains by streamlining the admin of elections and voting processes for you and your members.
Integrated ‘live voting’
Elections in associations often coincide with AGM’s and during these meetings the ability to carry out ‘live’ voting is often needed. We offer an end-to-end verifiable solution (ACV) that integrates with our other solutions and makes both remote and in-person ‘live’ voting possible.
What are the steps to get going?
If you are considering online voting for the first time, you will need to find out if your association’s bylaws allow for it. If not, you will need to plan a vote or launch a petition to change the rules following the amendment process that applies to your association. Once this is in place, you can start to plan your election.
