Where it Started

2003

Clicker Voting

(Discontinued)

Today

2024

Tablet Voting

Pioneering Solution

A purpose-built solution to streamline the voting process.

A simple and functional design with only four buttons, this method was an improvement over verbal roll-call voting.

Limited in its Simplicity

Though this was a modern solution at the time, it can’t be customized and lacks most features local governments need today.

Without a visual guide to show agenda items and meeting actions accessible through the voting device, this method cannot compare to modern smart devices.

Modern Solution

The OpenMeeting system has evolved to take advantage of smart device technology.

Our solution is now more flexible, modern, and secure, but still easy to use.

Improved Presentation & Public Experience

As public transparency and perception grow in priority for local governments, we developed an intuitive Voting Display and request-to-speak.

This prevents confusion or interruptions, so the public can easily follow the meeting.
