Learn how voters can benefit from online voting and find out more about the five steps involved in casting a vote online.
Cast your vote from anywhere in the world with just a few clicks
As a voter you can use any device with internet access (smartphone, PC or laptop) to cast your vote online. Thanks to the high security standards of POLYAS online voting software, the secrecy of the ballot is preserved and your vote remains anonymous. The system architecture strictly separates your personal data from the electronic ballot. By doing so, it is impossible to determine who individuals have voted for in the election.

POLYAS online voting system in 5 steps
1. Login: enter the access data
To enter the online voting system you need two pieces of login data: a personalised ID and a one-time password
2. Confirmation of login: anonymisation
The online voting system checks whether the data is in the electoral roll. Only eligible voters are granted access to the online voting system and the internal checking system sets up a token (digital ballot paper) for these voters, which will then be used to carry out voting. This token prevents interference with the identity of the voter as the vote is cast anonymously after the voter logs in.

3. Online vote casting: your election choice
The ballot can be seen only if the voter has not yet cast their vote. With the click of a mouse, you can cast your available votes on voting lists or single candidates, and there is also the option to cast an “invalid” vote.
4. Checking the vote
The ballot slip is shown one more time to the voter for confirmation after it's been filled out. This allows voters to check their choices and change any mistakes they may have made before the vote is sent to the online ballot box and made official.
5. Completion of voting
Logging out of the online voting system is required to complete the voting process. Only then is the ballot transferred to the online ballot box and your token deleted. You cannot reuse your login data. The ballot remains anonymous inside the digital ballot box.
Get information online and vote
Sending out polling cards and distributing login data also occur digitally. You will receive all the relevant information about candidates, times and your voting rights by email. This ensures that election documents can (almost) never get lost and you can confirm the exact time slot for when you will be casting your vote online.
Your choice. Your vote. One click.
