What it takes to run an election
with online voting for unions
Unions may hold a variety of elections, depending on their size and structure. Most unions will hold regular elections for their board of directors and executive committee, and some may hold separate elections for delegates and representatives of their local branches, as well as for strike votes or constitutional amendments. Luckily, implementing online voting software follows a similar process, regardless of election or vote type.
Is online voting allowed in your country?
Some countries have entities that oversee unions and their elections. These bodies may not currently allow online voting in union elections and may need to be petitioned for amendments to be made. Depending on your country, this may not be necessary.
Is online voting allowed in your union?
If online voting is allowed in your country, you will also need to verify that your union specifically has the necessary bylaws or rules to accommodate online voting technology use in union elections. If they do not, you may need to update your bylaws through a vote or approval by leadership.
Creating an up-to-date voter list
In an online election, your voter list will need to be accurate and complete with voters’ information so that they can receive the necessary materials for voting online. This information often includes an email address and/or telephone number, as well as a personal ID number.
Sending the voting credentials
When the voter list is complete, each voter will receive their credentials for securely logging on to the voting portal via postal mail, email, or SMS. Our experienced team will help you through this part, so you have nothing to worry about.
Generating the online ballots
Before the election, you will also need to create the ballots. Since each regional member may be restricted to voting for delegates in only their region, you might have to create multiple ballots. Thanks to our solutions’ streamlined designs, though, this doesn’t take much time at all.
When the voting period is open, voters can log on to the voting portal using their previously sent credentials. Voting is as easy as choosing your preferred candidate or option, confirming your choice, and casting your ballot.
After the election, each ballot is securely decrypted, preserving the voters’ anonymity, and is automatically counted. Results can then be verified by the election committee and published online.
Verifying the election
Every process of the election can be verified by third-party auditors, if necessary. Voters can also individually verify that their ballot was correctly cast by using a voting receipt sent to them just after voting.
