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.

ITV, Royal Museums Greenwich, National Lottery / Big Lottery Fund and the National TV Awards have all trusted us with their online vote

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.

Anti-brigading measures

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.

Email verification

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 (email@gmail.com, email+1@gmail.com) cannot abuse the feature to cast multiple votes.

CAPTCHA support

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.

Ten4 reinvented the British Soap Awards online by delivering a fresh, slick, up-to-date, secure and user-friendly site. We are delighted with the results, the fast and friendly turnaround and attention to detail.
