Who We Help

Professional Societies

Professional Societies

Professional societies are more than just their members - they represent a collective, assisting in advancing professional standards, furthering education, and defending the interests of their members.

When it comes to voting, organizing elections and ratifications can be difficult, especially when members are part of different departments or specializations.

Global Voting Challenges

Having a geographically-scattered membership can make it difficult to update mailing addresses or gather members together. It also adds problems to a typical voting process such as:

  • Traditional voting methods are more complex and time-consuming

  • Segmenting members into groups so they vote only on ballots relevant to them 

  • Creating ballots for individual members with their own candidates, or questions


Additional Voting Needs

Besides elections for the overall membership, many bodies have smaller categories based on specializations, industries, and practices. Typical considerations include:

  • Members who need to make decisions on their own specific candidates or questions

  • Assigning the correct ballot to voters of the right segments

  • Spliting voters into multiple groups, while allowing them to vote as a whole


Paper & Digital Voting Concerns

Major organizations often have their own existing voting setup, with guidelines that can complicate voting. Some issues with mixed voting methods are:

  • Absentees or certain members that insist on paper ballots

  • Manually counting, recounting, and auditing paper votes

  • Making sure both paper and electronic votes are integrated as a whole, instead of two disjointed tabulations


Our Approach

eBallot helps you facilitate a secure, accessible, and auditable voting event. Our software is used by many major bodies each year to improve their voting process:

  • Faster ballot delivery - Our online voting solutions mean individual ballots are sent digitally with secure access and are automatically tabulated

  • Easier ballot access - Members are reached regardless of their location and cast ballots at their convenience

  • No manual counting - We instantly tabulate results and automatically match voters to their department

  • Paper and digital voting – Hybrid tabulations and ballot types match seamlessly
