Who We Help



Unions represent workers and their interests across a wide variety of industries. Crucial decisions on representation, employer relations, and labor action can only happen after a secure democratic vote. Since this affects everything from contracts to leadership, there is an extra level of scrutiny from all sides.

A Labor Intensive Process

Preparing, mailing, and tabulating hundreds or thousands ballots requires time and effort. Union ballots often face extra regulatory measures as well:

  • Reaching members in different locations, or when they are mobile

  • Making sure your voters have the right ballot and questions

  • Meeting double-envelope, or other secrecy and integrity standards

  • Finding team members to actually run the election or vote


Special Representation

Besides elections for the overall leadership, many unions have smaller categories, based on chapters or work sites, with their own questions. These divisions mean that an administrator must:

  • Assign each voter the correct ballot or questions

  • Separately manage each department’s tabulations for specific questions

  • Balance identifiable groupings with the need for voter confidentiality

  • Manually count and recount the results to ensure accuracy


Reports, Neutrality, and Accountability

Our reports help when you need to prove the integrity and secrecy of a ballot. We offer:

  • Downloadable raw data and certified results reports

  • Auditability features and tracked administrator activity

  • IP restriction and administrator IP tracking

  • Ballot delivery and turnout verification
