ElectionBuddy offers three types of votes. To choose what's right for you, watch the short ElectionVote and MeetingVote Videos or review the comparison chart below.
Voters access a ballot using a unique link and credentials. Voters submit their choices and no further action is required.
The ballot can have one or many questions.
The voting period is open from a day to months. Voters respond at their convenience during the voting period.
Using their credentials, voters sign in and access a Meeting Page to vote on agenda items or positions. After casting their vote, voters return to the Meeting Page and wait for the next vote.
Typically, each ballot has one question, as each question must be voted on and results shared before voters are presented with the next ballot.
For each voting item, the voting period is open between 1 and 60 minutes.
Eligible voters receive an announcement with an invitation to participate in an upcoming vote or meeting. Optionally, have voters confirm participation in the upcoming vote.
Announcements can include a request to confirm participation in the upcoming vote, along with optional questions to provide feedback or nominate candidates.
The response period is generally up to 90 days prior to the election or meeting. Voters respond at their convenience during the announcement period.
