The Meridia EZ-VOTE system is excellent. Our board members are regularly bragging to other sites who still use raised hand tallies.

The clickers we bought are so helpful when it comes to voting during our meeting. Meridia Support has been super helpful with any questions that I have had and has helped get me the new updated version of the software.

I purchased Meridia’s EZ-VOTE system and used it at our Fall Town Hall Meeting. It went very well. Everyone there loved it! I didn’t receive one complaint. I have given Meridia’s information out to several other communities and would highly recommend their system for any live voting event.

The NAA has used the Meridia electronic election system for the past three years of our annual election of our Board of Directors. The validity of the election results is critical to both the NAA staff and to our members and your system has never failed us. Your voting system has allowed us to streamline our election process and reduce the timing of our business meeting which has always been a struggle, especially when faced with a run-off situation of an open position.

Meridia’s electronic voting technology has been used during our annual election since 2008. The system is reliable, fast, and auditable. Our election ranges from 3,000 – 5,000 attendees and the voting technology routinely collects each and every vote, while also allowing us to restrict certain blocks of the audience when they are not allowed to participate.

The Catholic Bishops gather once a year to unify, coordinate, encourage, promote and carry on Catholic activities in the United States; to organize and conduct religious, charitable and social welfare work at home and abroad; to aid in education; to care for immigrants; and generally to enter into and promote by education, publication and direction the objects of its being. During this conference we use the Meridia electronic voting system to vote on key issues affecting the church in addition to position elections.

Wireless voting systems are time-saving tools that allow groups to vote, elect and poll using audience response handsets and voting software. Motion, vote or question content can be authored in PowerPoint or through other media, giving moderators complete control of the voting content. Participants place their vote with response devices often referred to as “clickers”. The group’s responses are instantly collected by the electronic voting system, aggregated by the voting software and either displayed, repressed, or saved for future analysis.

There are many benefits to renting the audience response system from us – from lower initial investment to the in-and-out nature of rental. Determine the cost by using this simple formula: Number of Days x (Number of Keypads x Price per Keypad)
It’s generally wise to rent the voting equipment if you know you’re not going to need it multiple times per year, but we recommend that you hire us to do a job that’s larger than 500 keypads.
- Lower Initial Price
- No Maintenance Cost
- Training Included
- Pay Only for What You Use
Buying your own electronic voting system is a wise choice if you’re going to use it more often. It’s worth investing your time into training and learning all the features, so you can use the system for variety of different events/sessions.
You’ll have a one-time cost of purchasing the clickers, receiver and shipping. You’ll also (most likely) spend more time training and learning about it in comparison to the rental situation, when your event comes and goes, but on the other hand, you’ll never need our on-site help to run an event.
- One-Time Cost
- Free Training & Support
- Receiver, Cables & Configuration Included
- Flexibility to Use ARS Anytime
Radio Frequency (RF) keypads offer what the internet-based voting options can’t – they work independently, as a closed-loop system using a proprietary communications protocol to ensure security and integrity of the votes. This option requires a purchase of the dedicated “voting clickers.”
Using iPads at your event, or from their own mobile devices or computers at home, your participants can go through the entire session, along with voting questions at their own pace. This option is relatively inexpensive, as the participants are using their own devices to vote.
With CloudVOTE online voting system, you can specify a list of participants who can vote and require them to log into the voting session prior to answering any of the questions. The so-called “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) system allows you to avoid the expense of purchasing/renting dedicated electronic voting system.
All Meridia wireless audience response clickers have dedicated Yes/No/Abstain buttons and display for enhanced vote confirmation increasing voters’ confidence in the system and clearly confirming their activity.
Choose your clicker based on battery life, size, display or range.
