The Results Are In: Electronic voting for the HOA board election is the winner!
Written by: anonymous
One of the duties of the Election Committee is to manage the cost of each election. To that end, VoteHOANow now manages electronic voting for the association. This is a low-cost, efficient method for residents to vote.
In the most recent election, we sent out 2,095 electronic invitations to vote (one per property), and 73.3% of the electronic ballots (1,536) were voted. For homeowners who could not or did to want to vote electronically and preferred a paper ballot, we mailed out 366 paper ballots and handed out another 20 at the Concierge Desk for those who did not receive or lost their paper ballot. This again was one ballot per property. We received back 198 ballots (51.3%).
The cost of each electronic vote cast was $0.99. The cost of each paper ballot was a little over $4.24 per paper ballot voted. The return rate for evoting was 73.3% while the return for paper ballots was 51.3%. The association saved $4,992 thanks to evoting not to mention the time saved in sending and counting paper ballots. We encourage all residents to vote electronically.
