We do not send unsolicited emails to your members.
We do not sell or distribute your members' emails.
We make our money on providing elections on-line, NOT by selling your data.
Nobody, including us, likes getting spam email. We're doing our part to keep your voter email addresses off the market!
During the process of conducting a vote, we will ask for voters' email address for authentication,
so that you can be assured that only the people you want voting on your ballot can vote.
Depending on the Voter Registration type you select:
- Public - Anonymous,
- Public - Anonymous with Info collection,
- Mixed Public/Private Vote, or
- Private Vote
we will store your voters' email addresses.
When the Voting Period begins, you will have the option to have ezVote send them an email containing a Ballot Link telling them where they can go to vote. Or if you prefer, YOU can send that Invitation and We will provide that Ballot Link to you.
When a voter wants to begin voting on their ballot, they follow that Ballot Link to our website. For 'Public - Anonymous' elections, authentication isn't necessary.
For 'Mixed Public/Private Voting' or 'Private Voting', authentication is required. Using the “Login via Email / Verify Me” option, voters will enter their email address. An email is sent to that address to verify that that person is who they claim to be. This email will contain a login link to click to begin their ballot.
Upon completing their ballot, they may request an email receipt of their ballot answers.
By default, ezVote does NOT publish your results to your voters or to the public.
For all Voter Registration types, you may “pre-register” your voters. WE WILL NOT DISTRIBUTE THAT VOTER INFORMATION!
For the 'Private Vote' type, this pre-registration feature allows you to specify (by email address) those people who are allowed to vote.
For 'Public' voting, anybody with the Ballot Link can vote on your ballot without being pre-registered.
