The POLYAS Nomination Platform

The powerful POLYAS Nomination Platform

Before an election for association boards, university committees, or employee representations, there must be a field of candidates. Candidate proposals or candidate lists, supporting signatures and digital consents for the nomination must be administered. This requires enormous personnel as well as material expenses. Also, the large amount of time required for candidate nominations must be factored in.

Be the election administrator who lowers these costs and ensure a simple and secure candidacy for your nominees with POLYAS!

How to nominate your election candidates online

  1. Specify the boards or positions for which nominations should be put forward.
  2. Decide if self-nominations and/or nominations by another and/or list nominations are permitted.
  3. Create the electoral register and establish who may nominate.
  4. Set up the voter groups and digital candidate lists.
  5. Schedule the nominations period and send out the invitations.
  6. See and verify the submitted candidate proposals.

During the nominations period that you have set, your nominators can manage their own candidacy for the upcoming election, put forward individuals in their electoral district, or support candidates with supporting signatures. It is within their powers to amend, withdraw, and submit new nominations, as per the election rules. You as election officer can observe the whole nominations period in real time and communicate with your nominators using the POLYAS Nomination Platform.
