Voter turnout, or lack thereof, is an important issue for all elections. Low voter turnout can be especially damaging for member organizations, since these institutions require full participation to operate most effectively and in line with member wishes.
This is the reason Survey & Ballot Systems (SBS) can incorporate participation reminders into its services, utilizing everything from emails and postcards to special letters intended to maximize turnout in organizational elections.
Data from around the world shows election reminders can increase voter turnout and increase voting response rate with email reminders. In fact, the greater the number of reminders, the more likely it is members will vote. Each round of participation reminders historically increases voter turnout an average of approximately 5%. Organizations hoping to maximize voter response have a clear solution.
