Trade Union Conference Voting

Our unique Conference Voting solution allows trade unions to conduct online an online conference with secure live voting in a transparent and impartial manner.  Our new and flexible Conference Voting platform is browser-based, easy to configure and present and most of all, easy for members to access and vote. Voting results are displayed near-instantaneously to present members.

Trade Union Conference Voting


Unlike some other virtual conference platforms on the market, Conference Voting gives you the extra function of voter security, as it has actual accredited live voting technology at the heart of its functionality.  Our online conference system is based on encrypted communication and allows for complete separation of Voter ID and any votes cast when generating results. Furthermore, the platform is hosted in a secure and reliable hosting facility.

Prior to the conference, members receive an election code-protected link to access Conference Voting. Only validated participants can attend the meeting and vote in real-time. An observer mode allows others to watch the meeting but does not allow them to vote.

Conference Voting - Security

Device Compatibility

Our Conference Voting platform supports multiple devices.  Trade Union members can login to the platform (direct from the email or SMS link sent via the system) on a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.  Making participation possible wherever your members may be!

Online Meeting Voting

Conference Voting:
How it works

  1. Participants are sent a personal conference invite, with appropriate links, via the Conference Voting software (as an email or text)
  2. Participants access the conference and wait for the organiser to virtually open proceedings
  3. Participants are guided through the conference with the ability to ask questions by typing a message to the presenter, which is visible to the other attendees
  4. ‘For’, ‘Against’ and ‘Abstain’ or candidate ballots can be put to the meeting group. (Live votes can be anonymous or not and attendees have the option to change their vote before the voting time for the question expires).
  5. The presenter can use the system to calculate the results, deciding to ‘withhold’ or ‘publish’ the results after each ballot.
  6. The presenter closes the conference.

Service Options

All-in-one Conference Voting is an ideal hybrid meeting solution for remote and physically present conference attendees.

  1. Self Service: Clients can run their own conference independently with our self-service option.
  2. Managed Service: UK Engage will set up and configure key parts of the system, enabling you to present directly.

Conference Voting can be integrated with our other online democracy solutions. For example, we can register members for the conference with our online system.
