Public Health Emergency has been extended until April 11, 2023, and while the live events have been returning to traditional indoor venues, we still recommend that you use Visual Vote Confirmation as a best practice in secure electronic voting.
Thank you for working with us so diligently over the last three years to make things work even in the most difficult of environments.
Meridia has supplied America with electronic voting systems for over 50 years. Since 1970, our technology has assisted groups big and small reach consensus on critical issues. Our voting devices are simple, secure, and reliable. Our voting software is intuitive, flexible, and easy to use.
America’s two largest legislative bodies – the U.S. House of Representatives (who helped design the system) and The New Hampshire House of Representatives are using the Meridia electronic voting system for their legislative voting.
Our TownVOTE software has a variety of display options.
It is a digital voting software that was designed around the idea of visual vote confirmation (voting grid) which allows for maximum transparency and vote confidence. Results can be shown in real time or suppressed to prevent herd mentality (hide the vote values and subtotals until the vote is closed).
Small and medium representative governments across the U.S. and the world have embraced the municipal meeting voting system in their legislative meetings. Meet over Zoom or Teams or have a hybrid in-person and virtual meeting; we have a solution that just works, is secure, and intuitive.

FAA Managers Association,
The software is very easy to use and the support after the sale is beyond belief. Tech Support took the time after resolving my issue to maximize my use of the software by providing an impromptu tour and setup of the voting application, gave me several suggestions to optimize its performance. On another occasion, when I left a voicemail on the Support line at 6:30am, I received a callback in 5 minutes and they calmly walked me through the solution to my problem.
If you go with Meridia in your next audience response/electronic voting purchase, you will get a product that works and support that is the best I've ever worked with.

Today was an absolute dream! We had 30 nominees and had to pick 27 of them using the clickers. What normally takes hours on paper, took 45 minutes with the clickers! We can’t thank you enough!

Your voting system was such a joy to use. Compared to the 'old ways', it was much less stress for me, much quicker for the voters, and I love the comprehensive reporting!

Town of Lee,
We are a representative government, so we show how each representative voted instantly after the vote is closed, which saves a lot of time manually counting each vote. We also no longer have to vote for "Yea" and "Nay" separately. Our constituents like that they can see (in-person or over Zoom/broadcast) how their rep voted and whether they represent them well.

City of Wellington,
Ever since Meridia's TownVOTE voting system replaced the hand and voice votes, when we livestream our business meeting, it makes it easy for councilors, staff and any members of the public to see and understand exactly how a councilor has voted and exactly what they are voting on. It adds so much clarity to the meetings, and it saves a lot of time over any voting confusion. The audience is especially pleased about the added accessibility features.

Meridia clickers are easy to use, and their software can be operated effectively. We export the data and make it work with our proprietary software back at the State House. Meridia’s pricing, training, and support are wonderful, and I am glad to have worked with them.

The use of an electronic voting system helps us process the full markup votes among the 50+ members — accurately — in less than two minutes. By comparison, it used to take us 10 minutes to vote on a single item.

We could not be more happy with the purchase of our new Meridia software and keypads. We needed something fast and reliable for our first ever outdoor Town Meeting. Every step of the process with Meridia was exceptional. From the set up, to the customer service, to the product itself was so easy and user friendly! I would absolutely recommend Meridia.

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 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.

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

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.
