Unleash the Power of Online Voting

HOA Online VotingAssociations are adopting electronic voting in order to pass resolutions easily, effectively and without mailing costs. Most associations are typically set up as non-stock corporations and many states are permitting electronic voting, Pennsylvania is one of them. Older governing documents do not specifically state or address how meetings are held only the frequency making implementation much simpler.

Leverage Your Community Association Website

Because so many members can’t make meetings or simply throw direct mailings away, smart board members are leveraging their HOA vote via websiteHOA website for electronic voting purposes.

With meeting attendance and participation historically low, website voting is truly a game changer. Amendment changes and establishing a quorum for meetings becomes much easier. Boards still have to hold the physical meeting, but when you walk into the meeting, you’ll already have had enough people vote online that you’ll have your amendment passed and the quorum established.

4 Advantages of Using Community Websites for Voting

  1. Achieve a quorum in less time, with less effort.
    Send multiple notice types, electronic reminders, and remote and on-site strategies for capturing votes that will ensure that you get the best turnout to make the most of your online election efforts.
  2. A voting platform for all kinds of homeowners. Whether your homeowners prefer paper or electronic technology, online website voting via your community website offers a convenient electronic solution that works for many association members.
  3. Homeowners vote when and how they want. An optimized voting experience allows homeowners to vote on their device of preference, including mobile while voting remotely. Members can also vote any time during an open voting period.
  4. Ensure election integrity. Privacy can be a primary concern. Homeowners want to know that their information is protected and that their voting choices are anonymous. Your HOA website can deliver online voting options no matter the size or scope of your election. With the installation of an SSL certificate, a secure protocol is easily established on HOA websites.
