Simple, standardized nominations
DirectNominations moves the nomination process online, making it easier for administrators and nominees to manage the process. A web-based progress tracker shows election administrators what steps nominees have completed of your online nomination process. Administrators can log in from anywhere they have Internet access to check and review a candidate’s submission. For nominees, registration is done online and completed on their schedules via a secure self-service platform.

Administrator control. Administrators can set up the platform to meet position specifications: ballot type, office, fields, word count, etc. The result is consistent formatting for biography information across all candidates, making the vetting process and proofing biographies a breeze. Administrators can also track candidate progress by viewing who has registered, where candidates are at in the nomination process, send email reminders to candidates if they haven’t finished their nomination application, and are notified once an application is submitted.
Convenience for candidates. Users have the freedom to self-register on their own time, anywhere they have Internet access. Potential candidates use a convenient web portal for registration, biography creation and information submission. Users are also able to start and stop the process by saving their work and returning to complete it at a later time.
Electronic Petitions. Obtaining signatures for a petition is simple. Potential candidates can email a petition to a recipient who can complete and sign the petition electronically. Candidates have the option to also upload an already signed paper petition.
Backed by SBS. Support is provided every step of the way for potential candidates and administrators. Phone, email or web chat support is available to ensure an easy-to-use and enjoyable online nominations experience.
