An Overview of SmartBallot App Features

Published June 1, 2019

It can be difficult for professional associations, non-profits, unions, sports clubs and other membership-driven organizations to arrange elections and fulfill their governance responsibilities. Elections are expensive to organize and carry out. Often, geographic obstacles result in low voter turnout and poor membership engagement.

Until now there has been no secure, mature technology solution to solve these problems. The SmartBallot app makes it easier for organizations to engage and communicate with their membership.

Secure and Easy Registrar Management

Offered as a cloud-based software-as-a-service, SmartBallot ensures membership-driven organizations deliver good governance, democratic processes and best practices, legitimate decision making and administrative management resources.

Features include:

  • Notifications of changes to member contact info or errors (i.e. email not received).
  • Can send minutes, conduct surveys, and send other relevant documentation.
  • System tracks sent /received /opened emails.
  • Easy to keep membership details up to date, which simplifies proactive management for account administrators.

Powerful Security and Data Protection

SmartBallot’s authentication and verification systems, along with email verification, provide a level of security unavailable through any other existing voting software. The solution includes a detailed immutable log feature that logs every transaction, interaction and activity associated with a voting event.  

This feature is essential for audit purposes, as it provides a level of granular detail not available with any other voting software, while still protecting voter anonymity for every ballot cast.

In addition, data is encrypted from end-to-end including during transmission and storage. No data is stored on any device at any time.

Tested, Proven and Commercialized

The SmartBallot app’s underlying software architecture has already been tested, proven and commercialized, and is widely used by more than 120 First Nations across Canada to communicate, and hold elections and referendums online. The underlying technology has seen 100,000 ballots cast, with no security issues.
