The challenge is that elections are held only every 3 to 5 years

Many things can change in five years, both with digital systems and people. At the same time elections have to be carried out without error and the results delivered to the election committee on time.

Systems alone do not complete elections

Every election has its own rules and every organization its conventions and specifications regarding elections.

We have solid expertise in managing election projects

We can anticipate events, we have benchmark knowledge on what others have tried, what works and what doesn’t.

Project manager helps you with your election

Our project manager makes sure the elections proceed as planned and helps you ensure their success.

Create a complete, pre-approved candidate list

Candidate nomination is meant to attract members of your organization to step up for election. In our candidate nomination service the traditional filling and filing of candidacy forms is replaced partially or completely with a digital application.

The application checks candidate eligibility

The candidate data is saved directly on the candidate database. This also generates up-to-date candidate contact information for communication needs during the election.

Automatically generated candidate list

Inserting candidate information directly to the system reduces considerably the work required to check candidate eligibility and errors resulting from copying.

Bring candidates closer to voters

We provide the only solution in the market that integrates successfully the voting service with a voting advice application.

Give the candidates a voice

Election candidates can introduce themselves and their goals by answering questions and using keywords.

A versatile candidate search

Voters can search for a matching candidate by filtering search terms, with keywords or tags, and with questions.

Vote using your own device

Digital voting is easy and quick using any mobile or desktop device. Login via the service front page or voting advice application.

Strong identification ensures the integrity of the result

Our voting service checks the identity of the person using the strong online identification protocol and makes sure the vote is still unused.

Postal votes are entered into the system as they arrive

Before the vote is registered in the database the service checks whether the voter is eligible to vote for the given candidate.

Learn to understand and activate the electorate

Digital reporting can be implemented during the election race and the actual voting. Follow as the elections progress in real time and utilize tools in creating targeted campaigns.

Voter data using analytics

Identifying voters enables analysing the election result and activity for example by gender, voting time, voting channel, hometown and age.

Add colour to the election with raffles

During the vote count you can perform different raffles. The winners can be declared in a chosen manner and time.

”In 2017, we carried out together with Edita Prima the largest online elections in Finland, with 83 local cooperative banks and an electorate of over 1,5 million shareholder-customers.
