HOAs rely on voting. It’s important that you offer a full suite of modern election services to help increase election participation while guiding you through bylaw amendments, proxy voting and more.
One of the best ways to get HOA members to vote in an election is to make it easy and convenient. Paper homeowners association voting ballots can be tedious for both voters and election officials, so moving the election online (or adding online voting as an option), is a great way to ensure more participation.
Survey & Ballot Systems offers a safe, secure and easy-to-manage online voting platform to accommodate the unique needs of HOAs with up to 5,000 voters.
Online voting is automated and precise, no more having to worry about manual hand counts, tallying and duplicate ballots. Your association will also save time and money when you’re not designing, printing and mailing paper ballots.
Online voting can also increase HOA member participation in elections. When voting is easy and convenient, members vote. It’s that simple. There’s even mobile technology that allows members to vote from smartphones and tablets – wherever, whenever. And online voting is completely transparent so members see the process upfront and understand there is no mismanagement or fraud.
For three decades Survey & Ballot Systems (SBS) has worked with HOAs to eliminate stress while ensuring a user-friendly, secure, transparent and official election while on a budget.
Over 20 states in the US, including: Texas, Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, Washington, South Carolina, Oregon, and Minnesota – have changed their laws to allow HOAs to vote online. Lots of time, energy, planning and resources go into each HOA election. When voter turnout is low or when there are issues executing the vote, the effect on HOA staff can be demoralizing. Allowing members to vote online removes the expense of designing, printing and mailing paper ballots. Online voting saves money and sanity.
Still, many member organizations still only offer limited options for their members to vote. When you know your member demographics, you can better offer multiple outlets to make it most convenient to cast a ballot. Our technology is not only secure, but extremely accurate. With the online data you gather from your association’s votes, you can easily segment reports based on the information you need to improve future election efforts.
