Empowering homeowners to vote on HOA issues and candidates is one way to affect change in a homeowners association. However, there are occasionally issues during HOA elections, and the voting process can be time-consuming for residents and officials. Some unfortunate but common concerns for homeowners associations during election time include ethics, inconsistencies and contradictory rules.
The voting process in any homeowners association has to be regulated. It’s not enough for board members or for any group within or related to a homeowners association to take responsibility for voting outcomes when paper ballots are used. Another primary concern for residents is the time it takes to vote on issues and candidates.
Online Ballots Ensures Fair Election Outcomes
Unfortunately, election fraud does sometimes happen- inaccuracies and administrative problems have happened in regional and national elections. And no matter how confident HOA officials are about tabulating paper votes, errors can occur. The end result? HOA residents have lost faith in both in-person and mail-in elections. Electronic voting adds a level of security to HOA elections that inspires confidence in homeowners’ association officials and residents.
With an online ballot, HOA voting is easy- and secure. Homeowners register online to vote, review detailed information about ballot measures and candidate profiles, vote online and receive an email confirmation. HOA officials can review election results in real time, including the total number of yes and no votes on measures and the votes for candidates.
