May 22, 2017 • Mike Evans

Our society depends on technology a lot. It is not a surprise, as without developments in technology we wouldn’t be where we are now. One of the things technology has brought to us is the internet. People all over the world use the internet on a daily basis. It is quite useful for getting in touch with our friends and relatives. Also, it helps us a lot when we have no idea what to prepare for lunch. We can find thousands and thousands of recipes online. When we want to buy a particular product, but don’t know which brand to choose, and how much it will cost us, we can find answers online. The internet allows us to compare different products and brands. Who knows what we would do if we weren’t able to go online. Our lives would certainly be much harder than they are now.

The internet can help us with various situations and problems, and we use it on a daily basis for different purposes. Not only it is quite useful to individuals, but also it is helpful to businesses and organizations. One of the benefits the internet provides to businesses is the ability to vote online. Any institution, club, or an association can benefit from something like this. It is no wonder they opt for online voting. This type of voting includes an electronic system that can count votes. It is a much better alternative in comparison to counting votes manually, as it can save us a lot of time.

Advantages of online voting

Online voting is certainly more efficient than the traditional alternative. There are many benefits of electronic voting. One of them is, as we already mentioned that it counts votes using electronic systems instead of manual work. Another benefit is that online voting can increase participation. People are more willing to vote when they can do it from the comfort of their house. No one wants to wait in line for a long time so that they can vote. Traditional voting solutions include having to wait for a long time in line and driving to the voting location and back. On the other hand, there is no waste of time with an online alternative. This process can take just a minute or two, and people can vote from their house, work, a bus station, a mall, or any other place.

Another benefit is that online voting can save a lot of money. No matter if you are a member of an organization, association, or business, you will surely find this solution quite useful. It doesn’t include spending a lot of money on paper for printing, expensive machines, hiring individuals to count the votes manually, creating ballots, etc. Finally, online voting is more accurate than the traditional one. When it comes to traditional voting, there is always a risk of mistakes or duplicate votes. On the other hand, you don’t have to worry about these problems with the online solution.
