FAQs

Is eBallot Essential the right fit for me?

It may be!

You’ll likely benefit from eBallot Essential if:

  • You have less than 5,000 people in your group

  • Someone in the group has the capacity to build and promote your votes

  • You can see your group using this for more than a couple of votes per year

  • You’re okay with learning how to build and manage votes on your own (be sure to have a look at the “what kind of support can I expect” section)

If you still have questions, let us know about your vote. We’re happy to confirm that eBallot Essential is indeed a good fit.  If it’s not, we’ll share our thoughts on your best next steps.

How do you prevent people from voting multiple times?

This gets to the heart of why eBallot was created.

Most survey and polling tools can't protect against logins from different IP addresses or from private browser windows.

We prevent people from double voting by assigning a unique ID and one time use access code to each of your voters, prior to running your ballots.

A perk of this is that it allows you to see exactly who has and hasn't voted at any given time, as well as how they voted (if you enable that information).

How many ballots can I run per month?

There is no limit; our Pro and Premium plans both allow you to run an unlimited amount of ballots.

You can run them at separate times or simultaneously.

What kind of support can I expect?

eBallot Essential allows you to run an unlimited number of secure, digital ballots among your group for an extremely competitive monthly price.

Here’s what you’ll get access to upon sign up:

  • Our Getting Started Guide that shows you each and every step to running successful votes and elections

  • A robust knowledge base with answers to all common questions

  • Our US-based support team, who will respond by email within 24 hours

In order to maintain this price point, we are unable to offer instant, on-demand support. However, we’ve found this balance of cost vs. support level works very well for most people.

Still, we realize you may want or need more hands-on support. If so, we encourage you to reach out before subscribing and we’ll be able to make some recommendations that we think will work best for you.

We only have one vote per year. Can I pay per vote?

eBallot Essential works best for groups that run at least a few votes every year among the same people.

The number of ballots you can create are truly unlimited, so the more you run, the better a deal the software becomes. So, once you get your account set up, you might as well try using it for more ballots than you had initially intended.

Do you regularly engage in these voting-related events?

  • Electing leadership
  • Voting to accept new members
  • Making updates to your rules or bylaws
  • Approving budgets
  • Creating mission statements
  • Collecting feedback

If so, we guarantee you’ll get your money’s worth from eBallot Essential and then some.

If you really can’t see your group voting on more than one thing, eBallot Essential probably isn't the right fit. Contact us and we’ll give you the best options for your one-off vote.
