Tapping into years of experience with web voting systems (The National Television Awards, Insight Astronomy Photographer of the Year, The British Soap Awards, The National Lottery & Big Lottery Fund’s People’s Projects, to name a few), we have developed a reusable, flexible and secure online voting/polling platform. And we'd like to tell you about it.
So what does it do?
- Complex voting with any number of categories or voting phases
- Anti-brigading measures to maintain integrity
- Automated time-based content updates
- Secure control panel to monitor statistics
Multi-category and multi-phase voting
The platform can handle one category or one-hundred categories. Votes can be made individually by category, or through a directed vote flow. Your competition is spread over multiple phases? No problem! However big or small or simple or complex your vote, we can handle it.
We integrated a few features to identify and prevent mass throwaway voting to maintain the integrity of the outcome and the public trust in your organisation.
Verification via a unique emailed link ensures a vote’s email address is owned by the voter.
Throwaway email domain detection
Votes made with known throwaway email services are flagged, and can optionally be removed from vote results entirely.
Email plus-addressing detection
Voters whose email addresses support plus-addressing (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com) cannot abuse the feature to cast multiple votes.
Voting bots are rendered powerless with a simple humanity test; supports reCAPTCHA as standard.
Phase-based automated content updates
Need a different homepage before, during, and after the competition? We automate time-sensitive content-changes – a great help when your vote closes at midnight on a bank holiday!
Password-protected vote statistics area, with data export
Keep an eye on voting progress with the secure statistics panel. Analyse the success of a marketing push with graphs of voting behaviour and nominee popularity.
