AssociationVoting Overview

What is AssociationVoting?

AssociationVoting is a web-based election management tool for use with grants, awards, scholarships, boards, and committee elections. The platform is designed to help maximize voter turnout with features including hybrid elections, proxy voting services, and mobile-responsive online voting.

AssociationVoting enables the personalization of ballots based on region or sub-group membership, with no additional per-ballot fees. Using the secure online voting manager, election administrators can upload and manage their member database, add candidate biographies and photos, manage scoring weights, and edit, preview, and test ballots. In addition to default positions or propositions, users can also restrict a ballot item to a specific group or groups to allow only members in selected groups to vote on specific ballot items.

AssociationVoting provides a hybrid election service designed to streamline the transition to online elections while providing accurate results, including paper ballot counts via fax or mail. Support for multiple proxy voting formats, including limited, directed, and general proxies, and quorum counts, is also offered. AssociationVoting provides real-time vote tallies online along with a detailed audit of the election in a record summary PDF so that users can track the progress of elections. AssociationVoting certifies that all election results are accurate and representative of membership votes.

The Best There Is!


Deb H.

Great value for the investment!

We've been quite pleased with our experience. Last spring was our first year offering the option of online voting to our members. We run a bit of a hybrid election (both electronic and paper) right now as we are transitioning to what we hope will be a full online-only option in the future. Last year, when we went live, we had a minor hiccup with the field we used for our login credentials. Within an hour, I was able to send a help email, get a response, and get a "workaround" fix so that we had hardly any members actually impacted by the hiccup. I've worked with many other software companies in my previous positions, and I was very impressed by the quick and effective response we received when we had an issue. Renewing our subscription this year was never even questioned - and we even bought the annual subscription instead of the standard one-election license, so we can also run our district level elections electronically this year.

User-friendly, easy to use voting software packed with options for customization

We've been using Association Voting for our annual elections for five years and we will never go back to paper ballots again. It has helped us save money, time, accuracy, and streamlined our entire election process. We used to have to print and mail ballots to our 1700+ membership and wait for them to be returned via postal mail, which was time-consuming, costly, and came with a variety of problems (ballots not received, not returned in time, lost mail, etc.) Using this software has made it so easy for our members to vote- even for some of our less tech-savvy individuals. The ballot is so easy to create and looks great because we can add candidate photos and statements, making it more personal. The reports available at the end are very helpful to give to our leadership so they can see how many people voted and vote counts for each candidate, while keeping members' votes anonymous. We see no reason to ever stop using Association Voting as long as we continue to have elections!

Pros

AssociationVoting has the best software there is! As the Administrator for our organizations annual Board of Director's Election process, I've found this software to be extremely proficient, user friendly and adaptable. Being able to upload/import information to build the required platforms has been great! Having the ability to export weekly reports that are customized is also a prime feature. If you are looking for a platform that you don't have to worry about a comprise of voting integrity, I strongly recommend this platform for your election needs!

Cons

I honestly don't have a con. AssociationVoting seems to stay proactively involved in ensuring the program functionality is top notch and if you need anything, they are always available.

Pros

The biggest plus I see of this software is its ease of use. And that it is completely customizable in an easy to use interface and a very reasonable price. I'm able to set up our election with little issue, determining what fields we require for credentials. We also are able to use the software for both voting of our positions as well as bylaw language changes. It is a high value for the investment.

Cons

Really, there have been nothing that has been a true frustration for us. I wish we could decide alittle more on how the candidates are listed under the positions (we don't use a short description so I would have preferred that their photos be listed horizontally instead of vertically) but it isn't anything that we see as a negative.

Response from AssociationVoting

Hello Deb,
Thanks for the wonderful feedback. I am glad you find the software easy to use!

For your next election, let's try the 3 across candidate layout. I think you may prefer that one.

Thanks again for the feedback, Kim

Pros

- logical, user-friendly interface
- variety of customizable features (uploading candidate photos, welcome letter, instructions, etc.)
- thorough reports available at the end of election

Cons

There are no cons in terms of using the software or running the election.
It would be helpful to be able to download a simple pdf of the full ballot. It's difficult to find out how/where to do that.

Response from AssociationVoting

Hello Alyson,

Thanks so much for your feedback and your loyalty over the past 5 years! We hope to continue to support your elections well into the future.

We do offer a module that supports the ability to export a generic PDF of the ballot, as well as a personalized PDF per voter. I will send more details in a separate email.

Thanks so much for your feedback, Kim

Pros

Association Voting makes our annual board elections simple. It takes only a few moments to set up, and is easy for our members to use to cast their ballots. The reporting functionality is fantastic- we have access to all the data we need to validate our election and know that it's secure. The Association Voting team responds very quickly to any questions we have and are always incredibly helpful. We're able to fully customize the software to make sure it meets the needs of our election procedures and bylaws. I also love the option of having emails sent straight from the Association Voting portal with log-in information so that the experience is seamless for our members.

Cons

I would love to see this integrate with our association management database moving forward, but our current database has limited integrations so it's not possible (through no fault of Association Voting). Because of this, our members have to use a different log-in than what they would normally use. However, Association Voting is very user-friendly, so it's easy to communicate how members should log-in, what to do if they're having issues, and how to resolve any problems they may have.
