Elevating Member Democracy With Our Election Services
We understand cooperatives’ unique needs and challenges in ensuring transparent, fair, and efficient elections. Our election services are tailored to specifically address these challenges and provide a multitude of benefits for cooperatives and their members:
- Enhanced Member Engagement:
Engaged members are more likely to contribute to the cooperative’s success and overall governance requirements. Our strategies and techniques are designed to improve member participation and experience in elections, ballots, and AMMs.
- Transparent and Impartial Elections:
We prioritise transparency and impartiality, essential for building member trust. Our election administration ensures that every member’s vote counts and is securely administered using credible, trusted and proven processes giving integrity to the results.
- Increased Accessibility:
By offering multiple voting options, such as online voting, postal voting, and mobile voting, we make it easy for all members to participate, regardless of their location or preferences. All systems are developed with accessibility standards in mind and printed materials can be in large font format as needed.
- Efficient Administration:
We streamline the entire election process, from the opening of nominations with support to the final declaration. This efficiency not only saves time but provides full independence in the processes and also reduces administrative burdens on the cooperative’s staff.
With AMM and advance/proxy/ballot voting services, we enable every member to have a say in critical cooperative decisions and elected roles, even if they cannot attend in person (Articles permitting). In-store voting options further enhance inclusivity for cooperatives with physical locations.
