Run Seamless Remote & Hybrid Council Meetings with an Electronic Voting System
1. Inclusivity & Flexibility
Expanded Participation: Hybrid and remote meetings, coupled with electronic voting systems, enable broader engagement from constituents who cannot attend or have difficulty attending physically.
Fairness & Equality: When attending meetings remotely without an electronic voting system, it can be difficult for council members to have their voices heard during discussion. However, with request-to-speak speaker queue made available via the OpenMeeting electronic voting system, all council members attending (remotely or in-person) have the same opportunity to speak by requesting electronically through the OpenMeeting app.
With the OpenMeeting Technologies electronic voting system, council members motion, second, request to speak, and vote, in-person or remotely, through the secure OpenMeeting app.
2. Efficiency, Transparency, and Seamless Decision-makingStreamlined Processes: Technology integration, especially electronic voting systems, streamlines administrative tasks, ensuring efficient decision-making and documentation. With the OpenMeeting system, council members motion, second, and vote through the tablet app, and all meeting activity is automatically recorded. Transparency and Efficiency: Real-time voting mechanisms enhance transparency, providing council members and constituents with immediate vote results and an indication on how each member voted.
In Eau Claire County, Wisconsin, it’s easy to conduct hybrid meetings with the OpenMeeting electronic voting system, and it’s easy for the public to follow along with meeting activities.
