Elections

The Elections feature allows admin users to create an election with a variety of different questions, and send out emails to the membership to prompt members to vote in the election.  Within the emails, there is a link to follow, which allows the member to click through, log-in, and vote.  

NOTE: the election system is designed to allow only one vote per person.  The emails sent to members will provide a link that will require them to login to vote.

  • Multiple elections - multiple elections can be conducted at one time, with begin date and end date for voting.
  • Election auditors - access can be granted to multiple individuals to view election results
  • Paid members only - an option can be turned on to only allowed members in good standing (paid members) to vote
  • Restrict to member type - elections can be limited to particular member planField Types - election questions can be multiple choice, yes/no, text (for write-in), and 1-5 ratings.
  • Email feature - once participants are selected, an email can be edited and sent to those individuals
  • Reporting - reporting of election results incudes totals, statistics, as well as respondent data (who voted and who did not).  The elections module uses a special system to separate the member information from the actual results, so there is no way to determine which entry belongs to which member.
