Church Elections

Church elections take place in order to select a council or board which looks after the administrative affairs of the church. Often members of churches are invited to participate in electing their administrative representatives.

Church elections have traditionally been undertaken as ballot box elections, with the option of sending a postal vote also available to church members who cannot be present on polling day. Online voting presents a great opportunity for many churches to increase their voter turnout by offering an easy and convenient voting experience to their members.
