Who should use Anonyvoter?
Anonyvoter can be used by any organisation that wishes to conduct secret ballots remotely where voters want to be sure their votes are anonymous.
Scroll down to see the step-by-step guide and videos to how to use Anonyvoter.
How does Anonyvoter Work?
The person controlling any poll sets up an account, sets up a vote event (a meeting or a period of voting), and sets up any polls that need to take place.
These polls are sent out by e-mail to eligble voters, who receive a link to click to take them to a simple voting screen.
Each voter votes accordingly. The poll administrator can see the progress, and when everyone has voted, or after the allotted time, close the poll.
The poll administrator and any nominated observers will then see the result of the poll, and can share the results.
How is anonymous voting ensured?
Each person who votes is sent a random unique code to their e-mail address. As part of the voting process, the link between that code and their e-mail address is deleted, ensuring that their vote is totally anonymous.
The poll organiser can only see results and numbers who have voted at any time. At no time during the process can they see who or what anyone has voted for until the poll is closed, at which point they can see the results and nothing else.
While the poll is in progress the poll organiser and any observers set up can see who has and has not voted so far (but not what they have voted for)
