ElectionBuddy keeps your ballot secured to ensure the vote's integrity. We use the following measures for ballot security & vote integrity:

  • Ballots are encrypted using SSL encryption.

  • The amount of information an administrator may know about the voters' voting credentials can be very limited. For more information about the setting that controls this functionality, please visit our article on Integrity and Ballot Access.

  • Administrators can see who voted but can be restricted from seeing a voter's individual voting choices. Votes are summarized to show the winner and how many votes were received for each choice on each position or question. For more information about the setting that controls this functionality, please visit our article on our Voter Anonymity Setting.

  • When the Integrity of the vote is set to Medium or High, ballots can only be used once. Unique access keys are tracked and marked as completed once used to ensure that each ballot is submitted only once.

  • Voter information is tracked to allow for voting audits. Voters can use the confirmation code they receive after submitting a ballot to verify that their vote was included in the voting results. For more details on this process please see Election Verification - Allowing Voters to Verify their Votes.
