Tribal Council Voting System - Electronic Voting Clickers

Tribal governments in the U.S. are embracing a new, secure and convenient way to vote – electronic voting systems from Meridia.

Tribal Councils small and large have to vote on everyday issues that face each community. Using the Meridia voting clickers, they can securely cast their vote and get it on the record immediately.

The TownVOTE software uses a clear and easy-to-understand voting grid format that shows in real time whether each member voted, or it can be set up to show how each member voted after the vote is closed.

See How City of Wellington Uses TownVOTE

Wellington’s City Council brings up new motions or amendments quickly and they need to record the vote just as fast. With TownVOTE, they can type everything that’s planned ahead of time, but they can enter any of the motions on-the-fly and vote on it within seconds.

Their Democracy Advisor, Hedi Mueller says: “In the past, it wasn’t clear which clause the councilors were voting on, and it was difficult for the public to see and understand exactly how a member of the council has voted.” Now, the visual record of each vote and related reporting is immediately available to the Town Clerk and if needed, to the public, too.

You can choose to anonymize the votes during the vote, but show how each person voted automatically after it closes to increase transparency.

Alternatively, you can only show the summary of the vote, thus keeping the results completely anonymous.

With the latest update, TownVOTE can be configured for those with visual disabilities like color-blindness to show the results in “high-contrast” mode, so the display is clearer and have bigger visual elements when integrated with the A/V system and/or the Zoom broadcast.

TownVOTE

TownVOTE features an adjustable-size voting grid and indication of each vote, so the council members know that their votes have been counted.

Article/Motion summary as well as the Pass/Fail status of each vote is shown for everyone to see, providing clear view and complete transparency to your voting process.

Reports consist of raw data in Excel format and actual, indisputable screenshots of what the voting grid looked like when polling was closed.

You have full control over whether to show the vote’s progress in real-time, or only at the end of the vote to prevent ‘herd mentality‘.

User can pre-enter the questions based on the current agenda and simply call them up in the order they were entered, or easily skip around in any order that becomes necessary.

If a motion is entered from the floor, or an amendment needs to be entered ad-hoc, just duplicate any existing topic or enter a new one in just two clicks and go right back to voting.
