What is our approach to voting?
When it comes to voting on anything of importance, rarely does a "one-size fits all" approach work. We believe that even the simplest of votes should be carried out with expert precision.
Because of this, our team has worked closely with your organization to understand your specific voting requirements and tailored a solution to meet those needs.
How does voting work with the eBallot software?
The process for voting online is very simple:
- You will be emailed a secure link and user-specific login credentials to access your personalized voting portal
- From here, you will be able to fill out the ballot that you have been approved to access. Some ballots may even include additional resources, such as candidate profiles or summaries of policies/motions, depending on what you are voting on
- Confirm your choices and submit your ballot. You will be emailed a confirmation receipt
Congratulations, you've just completed your vote!
Are online elections safe and secure from potential interference?
Cybersecurity is a big concern when it comes to any action taken online, especially when important decisions are at play. However, we can assure you that our online election security measures protect you, your data, and your organization against risk.
Your data will be safely stored with Amazon Web Services (AWS), our cloud-based data partner. AWS is considered best in class for their storage, maintenance, monitoring, and data purging technologies. It's used by thousands of prominent organizations all over the world (NFL, Netflix, American Heart Association, and Formula One to name a few).
