The POLYAS Nomination Platform: transparent & efficient
The nomination of candidates can be done online without any media interruption on the POLYAS Nomination Platform. As such the costs of printing and postage are gone. The environment is protected and sustainability is ensured.
Nominators only require a web-enabled device with an up-to-date browser and Internet access. Election officers can enable access to the Nomination Platform either with the PIN/TAN process or SecureLink.
During the nomination period the nominators can put themselves or others as candidates, support candidates with a supporting signature, or submit complete nomination lists with a determined number of candidates from anywhere in the world. They can edit, withdraw, and replace their nominations during the nominations period. If they are nominated themselves, they can give their digital consent.
The whole communication with all information about the nominations takes place on the transparent POLYAS Nomination Platform. As such election officers and nominators always have an overview of the status of the nominations.
