Election Services

Election ServicesThis is a consultative service in which we manage the mechanics of your elections. Our computerized process, designed for the way religious congregations conduct their elections, will be customized to your particular requirements. The process works equally well in ritual/chapel or meeting settings. It is fully compliant with the requirements of Canon law and will be customized to your Congregational requirements.

We use your existing hardware (e.g. Laptops borrowed from members). No additional software will be installed on these computers. We create our own wireless network, so you do not need network access in the voting area.

We provide online video training for your members and online practice ballots in advance of the election. We train your tellers assist the voting process and administer the election. We manage all the technical issues.

As an add-on service we can provide online biographical profiles of nominees.
