Spring Town Meeting Season is in Full Swing

Since April, over 20 New England towns have conducted their annual meetings with the help of TownVOTE electronic voting software. Once a year (and sometimes more) towns across Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Connecticut come together in a formal setting to discuss, debate, and decide on matters that impact their lives and communities.

House Committee on Natural Resources Switches to TownVOTE Electronic Voting System

Since 2018, we’ve partnered with the House Committee on Natural Resources, who utilizes TownVOTE and clickers to record the votes at their Markup Meetings. After previously using a lengthy voting process that involved individually recording the votes of each house member, the electronic voting allowed the committee to significantly cut down on the time for each vote while instantly confirming their results with visual vote confirmation.

Vote From Multiple Locations With Hybrid Voting

Meetings can take place in a variety of locations, especially after COVID-19 restricted in-person meetings like never before.

Introducing New Pre-vote Screen and Speakers’ Queue

Managing debates and discussion during your meetings can be a tricky task- especially when multiple speakers are expected to take the microphone to argue for or against certain motions. That’s why we’d like to introduce TownVOTE’s new Pre-Vote screen and Speaker’s Queue. Now, users have the ability to manage speakers, set a timer, and take notes all in one convenient location.

Verify the Integrity of Each Vote with Visual Vote Confirmation

When it comes to group voting in a professional setting, having the proper security measures in place is of utmost importance to ensure a smooth experience and accurate results. It’s unacceptable to have a voting session interrupted, or worse, find out that the results of a vote have been affected by an unknown source in any way.

7th Day Adventists Across the Country are Using TownVOTE Electronic Voting System

Every five years, various 7th Day Adventist conferences meet to discuss and deliberate issues, bylaw changes, and more. Traditionally, all voting during these events was handled by pen-and-paper ballots and manual vote-counting. While this process allowed the conferences to conduct a secret ballot, the process was often stressful, tedious, and time-consuming.
