ElectionBuddy allows you to email a confirmation receipt to voters when they cast their ballots.

Why Send Confirmation Emails?

  • Proxy Voting. Emailing a confirmation to your voters is an excellent way to identify unauthorized proxy voting. If your voter receives a confirmation for a ballot they did not submit, they are able to contact the administrator to remedy the situation.

  • Assurance. Online voting is new to many, and having a confirmation that a vote was received and recorded, is helpful for voters to feel secure in the integrity of the vote. The confirmation code, which can be matched to the vote audit, provides another level of assurance their vote was not altered.

  • Legally Required. Depending on your organization's bylaws, confirmation may be legally required for your vote to be considered valid. For example, many HOAs require email confirmations for online voting.

Setup

On the Notice page, select Email a receipt to voters under the Email notice section.

The confirmation email is written in the primary language selected for the vote, and automatically sent to voters when they complete the submission of their ballot.
