For many people, the notion of using an online ballot is all-new. You might have concerns about electronic voting, like is it secure and is it safe? The answer is yes. In fact, you might be surprised to learn that using an online ballot is more secure than in-person voting.
Online Ballot Privacy
Using online ballots at Vote HOA Now is secure. Paper ballots have a few things working against them. When you’re voting in person, your ballot can be lost or misplaced. Voting machines may not count or assign votes correctly. And in recent years, we’ve become all too aware that election fraud and the mishandling of ballots can happen. Some states have even outlawed proxy votes for homeowner’s associations to help safeguard against fraud.
When you vote using an online ballot, your privacy is protected and the authenticity of your votes is assured. Basic information about the homeowners association is gathered, and in addition, Vote HOA Now also collects information about individual voters including HOA account number, email address and internet address. This ensures that each vote is unique. In addition, Vote HOA Now protects your HOA residents’ privacy.
