Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) December 14, 2009
Southern Air Crew Group (SACG) is a US-based, company-affiliated organization of wide-body aircraft cargo pilots whose members are, at any one time, spread out across the globe. The World Wide Web (WWW) is literally their lifeline to daily life.
In December, with the help of Election Trust, the WWW was their secured voting platform to approve a merger with the Teamsters union.
“While we had only seven days for the election we were still looking for record membership participation north of 50%,” said, Bob Guy, SACG’s Chairman. He added, “We landed well north of that at 83.8%. Needless to say we were extremely pleased with the secure eVoting platform and excellent voter assistance services provided by Election Trust.”
Election Trust managed SACG’s merger vote on its eVoting platform which is Secured by Scytl, the world-wide leader in research and development of reliable remote electronic voting technology.
“We applaud the foresight of SACG, an organization with highly mobile members, to move mission critical voting to a secure, internet-based balloting solution”, responded John Bodin, Election Trust’s Managing Partner.
Bodin added, “We were flattered that SACG put their faith in our web ballot platform and customer service. And we are more than impressed with an almost 84% turn out! That is by far a record for any online election I’ve been involved with in my over ten years of secure eVoting management!”
