New features increase optimization for a wide variety of electronic voting circumstances

TownVOTE electronic voting system

TownVOTE shows individual voting results in real time, or after voting period is closed.

In upgrading TownVOTE, we specifically listened to users who wanted a better election and voting tool.

Meridia Interactive Solutions, the leading provider of audience response hardware and software, announces the latest update to its innovative TownVOTE electronic voting application, providing additional options for large-scale polling and voting for municipal and corporate voting.

The new TownVOTE dashboard update consolidates all the app’s previous features, allowing users to quickly and easily customize Meridia’s interactive hardware for use in a wide variety of voting situations.

“This is a new way of doing things from the ground up,” said Meridia Chief Operations Officer Peter Babel. “This version adds a variety of voting rules, such as simple majority (51 percent) and two-thirds majority. The participant grid is flexible and responsive to best accommodate the number of voters as visibly and legibly as possible. By eliminating the need to transcribe paper or voice votes to electronic documentation, we save our customers both time and money.”

TownVOTE is now optimized for voting environments ranging from small municipal councils to corporate shareholder meetings of more than 1,000 people, offering the options to vote yes, no or abstain. Projected displays can be customized to show voting as it occurs or, to avoid influencing pending votes, only after all votes have been cast and tallied. Security is a priority, with TownVOTE operating completely offline for both voting and report generation.

New features of TownVOTE allow for voting on set topics, as well as ad-hoc votes on amendments that might come up during a meeting. The app also can be customized to allow for a speaker queue, which displays a speaker’s name and the order in which they will be recognized.

“In upgrading TownVOTE, we specifically listened to users who wanted a better election and voting tool,” said Babel. “We have a close relationship with our clients on the support side and follow up on requests for new features.”
Unlike other interactive response providers, Meridia provides access to TownVOTE forever with the purchase of the voting hardware. Access to screenshot storage via the cloud is free for one year after purchase, and available via subscription thereafter.

Meridia helps trainers, educators and speakers adopt and integrate interactive audience response systems into their presentations, training content and lesson plans. Leading the field since 1970, we focus on interactive solutions that help engage participants, increase knowledge retention, and automate data collection. We make group interaction SIMPLE, technology INTUITIVE, and software EASY.
