Simplify Voting in Your Meetings with OpenMeeting – Union County, TN

Union County, TN is already using OpenMeeting to make their meetings better and easier. Watch how OpenMeeting simplified their voting process.

Voting is perhaps the most important part of any board meeting. Rather than taking the time to vote one-by-one, OpenMeeting makes the process easy. It allows all board members to vote simultaneously, removing undue influence from board decisions.

When it is time to weigh in and make decisions, board members are shown a simple interface in the Member App requiring a single click to cast their vote at the the same time as every other board member. This speeds up the voting process significantly and more importantly removes undue influence.

The results are tabulated and displayed immediately with all details of the vote recorded behind the scenes automatically. Everything is clear and accountable and the time it saves busy board members is invaluable.

Meeting Manager connects seamlessly and automatically to the Member App and the Public Display ensuring everyone participating in the meeting sees what they need to see, when they need to see it. Meeting members follow the agenda on the Member App on their personal devices and are prompted to take procedural actions as needed. Meanwhile, public observers see meeting events happening in real time on the Public Display with clear visuals of procedures and voting results.

This is all controlled and distributed automatically via Meeting Manager as the clerk advances through the meeting agenda. Meeting Manager makes this normally challenging process incredibly simple and removes distractions while keeping everyone informed and on topic producing better quality meetings every time.

With a simple click in the Discussion Manager, the Chair is able to present, manage and advance procedural actions like, motions, seconds, amendments and most importantly voting. The Discussion Manager guides the Chair through these procedures ensuring nothing is missed and everything complies with board rules. It allows the Chair to focus their effort on guiding the tone of the meeting and quality of the discussion rather than getting lost in concerns of bothersome procedural compliance.

If you are broadcasting or streaming your open meetings, the Public Display can appear full screen during voting sequences for even greater visibility and clarity around the proceedings for remote participants. The Public Display is flexible and easy to build into your current set up and powerful enough to support your future aspirations.
