Confer the right to nominate online
Would you like to conduct nominations of candidates for your university, club, or association? Save on time and administrative costs and organize the whole nominations process from the planning to verification on the Nomination Platform flexibly, transparently and less error-prone from anywhere.
It is so simple online:
- Decide for which positions or boards candidates can be nominated
- Define the types for the nomination: self-, another- and/or list nominations
- Stipulate who have the right to nominate (list of nominators)
- Create voter groups (according to counties, voting rights, faculties, and other attributes)
- Determine the period for the nomination
- Invite to submit nominations (option to send mails via own mail server)
- Oversee and verify the candidate proposals online
Self-nominations, nominations by another and list nominations
With the powerful browser software, nominators can nominate themselves or others, submit candidate lists, or support those who have already been nominated with supporting signatures - depending on the options the election office offers - all online with a mouse click.
Dependent on the configuration your nominators see an overview of all boards, for which they may nominate candidates. Every individual board can be expanded on the nominations ballot paper to make entries for that board.
Transparency for the nominators
Nominators can communicate with the election office regarding their nominations on the Nomination Platform. They receive for instance a response whether the submitted nominations were formally correct and complete.
As regards changes, the nominators can amend, withdraw, or replace their nominations and check the status of their nominations at any time. The election office can observe the course of the nominations period in real time.
