-Extremely user friendly. The option to send electors a direct link to vote allows a smooth experience - Specific reminders only to registered electors who had not yet cast a vote (fantastic that reminders did not spam everyone, but targeted only those who had not been active) - Segmentation feature: where we are running one election but has multiple portions to it - Integrity of the platform: data was handled very securely, and we had multiple staff comment on how comfortable they felt with the experience - Reports generated from the system shows percentage of active electors (extremely useful metric for us) - Run-off election handled very easily - Excellent support system and guidance from the folks working at Simply Voting; when we explained what we needed, we felt like they were on the same page with us and provided us with solutions

The fact that the Project Mgr assigned to our account made himself available was invaluable.

An election that made it convenient & easy for any member to vote. The fact that the results were available less than 1 minute after the voting closed. The fact that the results were verified by Simply Voting & had nothing to do with any Member of our Union. The fact that Simply Voting assigned a Project Manager to our account to help with any aspect of our election voting. They offered their expertise on the type & size of material that would fit on the site. They gave me updated information on voter turnout. They are simply an outstanding company to work with. I would not hesitate to use them again for any future local or national election.It was idiot proof. All one had to do was make their choice & follow the clear directions given to finish casting their vote. There was no way that anyone could make a mistake. The choices were clear, the instructions were clear & there was a final opportunity to abort the process if one chose to.

Our surveys/elections/votes were completed easily and quickly and on time. results provided immediately following the event.To be honest, I did not need to use the software as we had it fully managed. it was worth it to do so as very reasonably priced and the support was thorough.

Benefits

Simply Voting is a secured cloud-based online voting system that supports organizations across broad industry sectors with the management of democratic elections, with TRUSTe compliance and SOC 2 certification.

Users create elections via Simply Voting's election manager, specifying dates, times, and questions etc, before choosing voter authentication methods, uploading eligible voter lists and sending out mass emails to those voters.

Voting is facilitated through a customizable, branded voting website that authenticates voter identity and allows a vote to be cast via an electronic, encrypted ballot with the voter receiving a receipt while being blocked by the system from voting in the same election multiple times.

Results are encrypted and kept 100% anonymous, with administrator users able to view the results as they happen within the election manager, alongside a variety of available reports on voting activity, before ballots close and results publicly on the election campaign's website.

Kiosk support services include a special kiosk-ready version of the voting website for organizations requiring a physical poll station, automatically logging voters out of the system after votes are cast.
