Handling Chapter and Subgroup Elections

2 minutes to read

When it comes to handling chapter and subgroup elections, it’s easy to want to cut corners. In these smaller member organization settings there are significantly fewer voters and often lower budgets, but the importance of a fair election remains. How can you reconcile these two seemingly conflicting needs?

Secure Online Voting

Well-run, transparent elections are the hallmark of principled member organizations. Open voting reinforces transparency and integrity in organizations’ governance processes, as well as encourages participation. Including an online voting element can enable you to maintain high security while increasing convenience greatly.

Self-administered online voting is typically the most cost-effective way to achieve this goal. This means an administrator from your organization would “build” the election in the online platform of a third-party provider. These can vary greatly, so make sure to do your homework – free isn’t always the best choice! Make sure you are not sacrificing any accuracy or security by working with a solution that is too focused on low costs.
