We utilized the Simply Voting site to conduct our Country Club Annual General Meeting elections and voting process. We found it to be extremely convenient, cost effective and was very well received by all of the members that utilized it. We will definitely utilize this method in the future years as it assist the Club with staying on the cutting edge of technology.

We were extremely pleased with your service. I found I got prompt and helpful response to my e-mails for assistance in setting up: when we experienced a problem with international times (apparently I set the dates before I set the time-zone) and when I noticed a typo in the ballot paper after I had finalised. The election itself ran without incident or complaint, and without any need for me to do anything after initial setting up. We will be using your service again next time we are holding an online ballot.

Thank you so much for the assistance in our voting system for our District Conference with the British Columbia and Yukon PAOC. There is a sense from users that the electronic voting went so well, that we will be looking to utilize it fully again in the future for other mandates that we are part of. Please know that I will be making recommendation to some of the other PAOC districts across Canada as they consider this opportunity as well.

Lincoln School is a small, independent international school that in the past had difficulties reaching out to the electors or obtaining the 25% quorum required to validate the Board election process. This year, Simply Voting has provided us with a secured and easy to use online voting system that has allowed us not only to reach many of our voters, some of which travel extensively, but to obtain a 68.2% turnout. In the name of our school community, I would like to thank you and Simply Voting for your excellent product and your support during our election process.
We'll definitely be in contact with you again next year.

Our online voting experience was better than good. We increased our voter turnout from 16% to over 36%. The feedback from our members was very positive. I will be definitely recommending Simply Voting to anyone who wants to go to online voting.

For our southern region ballots, we were THRILLED with the response—double our normal paper ballots. I was concerned, however, at the number of bounce-backs. Not sure what we can do about this in the future. What do other organizations do?
For the board ballots, no comments.
We love online voting!
It was a great experience and I believe a success. Thank you.
Pacific Southwest Association of REALTORS
Your voting system and customer service are EXCELLENT! You have thought of everything to make it easy for admins to set up and conduct an election. I'm having a hard time thinking of anything you could do different. Even when I didn't see an option to print a paper ballot, you emailed one to me right away. Unless it's rare for people to ask for a paper ballot, I guess you could add a button to print one. But if you choose not to add this option, the system is still GREAT the way it is!!!!
We will be using Simply Voting to conduct all future online elections.

Just want you to know how pleased the entire Board and membership were with this online voting experience. You made it simple to navigate, easy to set up and completely impervious to "monkey business"!

We are now surpassing our previous success rate with the old-fashioned paper ballot method of the past... and no complaints from anyone ;-) That in and of itself is a huge success!

Thanks for checking in. Everything seemed to have gone very well. Even when I had a question, your customer service support was fast and excellent. We plan on using Simply Voting again for other club voting processes because it worked out very well for us.
Thanks again for a wonderful system!.

Thank you for all of your help with our election. We had record participation in our board election -- 609 ballots cast, 429 of which were cast online, and a total turnout of 12.3% of our membership. I believe this is the highest NUMBER of ballots we have ever had cast in any Weavers Way election; and the turnout percentage has been exceeded only once in our recent history (on a particularly fundamental bylaw change vote). This was certainly the most successful routine election we've had in recent years, and we attribute that almost entirely to the availability of online voting.
We really enjoyed working with SimplyVoting. Our members found the service easy-to-use, and I found your service and responsiveness wonderful. Our leadership committee really enjoyed the reduced work compared to their old job of tallying hundreds of paper ballots. Please feel free to use us as a reference for other customers in our sector. Your email blast feature-- with the built-in direct voting links-- had a direct impact on turnout (each blast that we sent resulted in 100 or more votes within 24 hours). I also especially appreciated Bret's lightning-fast response to address a vote reset during our final paper ballot entry session last night.

This was a terrific application. It worked exactly as I wanted it; it was very easy to use; directions were excellent... overall an excellent application, and I would recommend it to anyone and would use it again.

The Simply Voting interface was fabulous. Set up was a snap and our members appreciated how easy it was to vote. You can probably guess my only suggestion, and that is the ability to update/change elector email addresses after a ballot has been finalized. When working with that large of a group, it's likely not all email addresses are up-to-date and it would have been nice if I could have quickly edited the email addresses rather than bugging your tech support. But I do have to say, your response turn-around on my two elector edits was top notch. Very quick.
Other than this, if we have another large vote in the future, I will return. Have a great week.

I wanted to take a minute to commend your employee, Bret Scofield. Not only did Bret do a Webex demonstration for our Board last month, he was extremely responsive to our questions and concerns and was a huge factor in our Association deciding to sign a contract with SimplyVoting. We just concluded our first election and it was an overwhelming success. We received a 100% voter turnout for the first time in our Association's history. Obviously, with it being our first time running an election/vote, we encountered a few hiccups, but Bret was extremely helpful and responded almost immediately when I sent him a message or question. In addition to being extremely pleased with your product, I am even more impressed by the customer service provided by Bret. I look forward to a long and successful partnership with SimplyVoting.com.

Our election process utilizing your company Simply Voting went very well! By using your services, we saved on money and time!
The whole experience was very positive, not just for me as Election Manager, but also for our voters!
I received many compliments from our membership about the simple, fast and reliable way to vote. The look and options that your website offers is very professional. Your technical support was very kind, friendly and helpful!
I will definitely recommend SimplyVoting to others and we hope to use your services in the future! Thank you very much for your collaboration!
LA Chapter, American Guild of Organists
Our election went perfectly.
Everyone was extremely pleased with having the candidate information on the ballots and especially their ability to use their existing Outlook IDs and passwords to logon.
It only took me a short time to set up the ballot and create the elector list and having candidate descriptions and photos was well received.
Participation was over 70% for the basic science ballot over 50% for the allied health ballot and over 25% for the clinical science ballot.
Overall we were extremely pleased with the outcome of the election using your voting system - the cost was money well spent in terms of decreasing time and effort in creating and using paper ballots and increasing participation.

We were very satisfied with Simply Voting. Almost half our members voted and nearly all voted electronically. This level of turnout is much higher than I expected. The results were immediately available and we liked that an audit trail was available.
Our elections occur every three years. I expect to call upon you for the next election and if we have any election-like event in between.

I would like to thank you for Simply Voting. My organization, Chattanooga Scenic City Sickle Cell Corporation is in the process of reorganizing and your hard work helped us.
As we are moving forward to bringing awareness to sickle cell disease and how it affects our community along with the cure through bone marrow donation, your assistance with online voting has been a blessing.
Thank you for making your dream become a reality.
