Should You Consider Setting Up An Electronic Voting Program? Women and men have been voting on things since the ancients gathered around the fire pit and made the decision by popular voice who was going to lead the tribe. This was assuredly crude voting, done by physical violence as it was probably a matter of life and death since the banished leader was exiled from the group. Over the many years that have passed ever since then, voting has become more sophisticated, but the idea has really not changed that much. You simply get a group together, supply the issue to them, and everybody expresses their opinion, with a majority of votes carrying the day. The size of the group that is casting the votes and where they are located is now more fluid since then, obviously. Now, you could just as easily belong to a world-wide association of businessmen with offices in Tokyo, Germany, and Chile as you could belong to your homeowners' association for your neighborhood, where every person lives within a 3-block area. Making use of electronic voting systems allows people across expansive areas to come together virtually to vote for something or someone located in another area. Voters no longer have to be in one local area, as distance will not be a problem. This could help you save a lot of cash if you routinely had to send out ballots, make phone calls, pay for return mailings, and perhaps do this more than once, assuming replies did not return as they were supposed to. That is why it's an excellent idea to pay a sensible price for an electronic voting system one time only. Accuracy and reliability in vote tallying continues to be important when it comes to election results. In some instances, such as with financial institutions or huge businesses working with multi-million dollar properties, one vote is important. An electronic voting system is priceless when it comes to correctly tabulating votes, the ability to keep track of where the most or least votes are coming from with completely different institutions or areas and more. Dependent upon the system purchased, tracking groups of people who haven't voted could allow for follow up voting reminders. On the other hand, if your votes are more casual and you can just count up the ballots that manage to get in to you in time and you are satisfied with just counting them up by hand, then it might not be worth investing in the software that allows you to control your voting so precisely. You also ought to consider how frequently you are going to be using the program. If you hold elections every few weeks that have to be done in a timely manner, then this would strongly suggest that investing in a software program to aid you is going to eventually pay for itself with reduced administrative costs. Casual elections which need to take place on a far lesser basis of every few years, and with a small number of voters, may not need voting software. You need to decide whether the convenience and speed of obtaining and calculating the votes are worth the added costs and this is something that no one else can or should really do.
