The fact that we’ve been forced to meet virtually has, I think, given some owners greater access to condominium meetings. [Note that owners who don’t have access to a computer can attend by phone, and can participate quite effectively, which also helps with access to such meetings.] Here are some things we have experienced at some of our virtual meetings:
Some of the most common questions we at CondoVoter hear from condominium unit owners and board members who are apprehensive about remote voting are “What if I don’t have a computer” or “I’m new to learning this technology.” We understand how important meeting participation is and we are constantly looking for ways to make remote voting more accessible.
CondoVoter announces our new Vote-by-phone option
We have developed an easy to follow 3-step process that provides safe and secure remote voting. Our new Vote-by-phone option allows owners to vote remotely, using their phone, with these three simple steps:
- Step 1. Owners dial CondoVoter’s voting line and authorize themselves using a private pin number.
- Step 2. A pre-recorded and professional voice actor intuitively explains to owners the items available for them to vote on and prompts them through the process.
- Step 3. Owners securely place their encrypted vote either through dial tone key pad presses or through voice recognition.
The Vote-by-phone option comes with several significant benefits. For example, if an email is on record for the unit, the owner will receive a confirmation via email of how they voted. Their vote will also be confirmed via phone. Additionally, owners have the option to change their vote up until voting closes. Furthermore, voting by phone can be done in advance of the meeting, or during the meeting itself.
How it Works
√ CondoVoter’s Vote-by-phone option integrates directly with our existing online voting platform.
√ Votes placed via phone are instantaneously recorded alongside online votes and results are available in real time.
√ CondoVoter’s system policies prevent multiple votes being cast per unit, accommodates multiple unit owners, and through dynamic ballots presents Owner-Occupied votes only to applicable owners.
As board members and managers, we know it’s important for owners to vote at your condominium’s meetings. Now, you don’t have to worry if you don’t have computer access. CondoVoter’s Vote-by-phone option is here.
