Homeowner associations (HOA), condominium associations, strata councils, and coops use OpaVote online voting to save time and money in running their elections online.
You can use OpaVote to run online elections to allow homeowners to elect trustees and also to have trustees vote on issues on behalf of the HOA. When trustees vote, you may want to use recorded or non-anonymous voting.
OpaVote keeps track of who has voted and who hasn't and allows you to send reminders to people who haven't voted.
Allow voters to vote at home on their phones, by using a paper ballot, or voting at a meeting. Easily combine all types of voting.
Online voting is so easy and inexpensive that you can hold more polls and elections to better understand the needs of home owners.
Since homeowners can vote on their phones, simplify elections by avoiding proxy voting.
You can weight voters according to the square footage of their unit or other criteria. Learn more about weighted voting.
For some elections, you may need to record how peeople (e.g., trustees) voted for full transparency of the election. OpaVote allows recorded voting as well.
Whether your condo shares are represented as percentages or decimals, you can easily convert them to whole number weights for use with OpaVote. First, make sure that each share (whether percentage or decimal) has the same number of digits after the decimal point (add trailing zeroes if needed).
Then remove the decimal point (and leading zeros if you have decimals). The resulting numbers will be the whole number weights for use with OpaVote. Check your work by making sure the weights add up to a round number like 1000, or 10,000 (the number will depend on the number of decimal places).
