Increase Voter Turnout: Worldwide Vote Casting

Near empty polling stations and weak legitimisation of election winners are the results of low voter turnout. There are several reasons why people might abstain from voting, but you can stay one step ahead and reach your voters wherever they are worldwide. Voters have never lived and worked as flexibly and mobile as they do today. 

University students embarking on exchange semesters, and regular trips or longer stays abroad due to work are the norm nowadays. Make use of the digital opportunities online voting has to offer and facilitate participation in your election for all of your voters worldwide. 

A Service for your Voters Worldwide

Increasing mobility in our society should not exclude voters who live abroad from participating in elections. Notify your voters of the election via email before the election starts and inform your voters abroad about the option to vote online. This is where an election mirco-website can help. Learn more!

Before the election starts you can inform your voters about election details online and save postage in comparison to using paper poll cards. Postal voting falls short in contrast to online voting because online voting reaches the voter wherever they are and saves valuable time: a postcard sent overseas needs several days to arrive - even in the 21st century - whereas an email can go around the world in seconds.
