Easy and efficient management of the voting process
The student council enables the pupils to enact democracy and leadership within their school. The voting procedure to form the student council is of a very high importance, since the whole student body is taking part as the electorate. Online voting can help you increase your voter turnout and legitimize your elections better.
To carry out an online election, no technical conditions are required, but only an Internet connection. As the election manager you decide how to make the electoral roll available, how the voter information should be delivered and how the election results should be proceeded.
To cast their vote, all eligible voters receive an personal ID (e.g. Unique Pupil Number) and a one-time password. With this data, the elegible student can access the voting system in a secure two-step authentication. After logging into the voting system, the online ballot is displayed and the voter may allocate the disposable votes per candidate / list.
The digital ballot box stores all completed ballots and is locked throughout the entire duration of the election. Only the amount of casted votes is visible to the election manager in the meantime. After the election period the ballot box is counted automatically by the POLYAS system, so the returning officer receives the election results at their fingertips.
