These types of clients have use for everything from assessing infrastructure needs in their communities to getting public feedback on summer festivals, etc.
Anonymity means that neighbors can disagree without being obvious, preventing hard feelings from being felt in certain geographic areas. This can also be used in this format to decide the future of roads and highways and what route they should take through the surrounding landscape.
Citizens enjoy being an equal part of the decision making process instead of just being told how things will be done.
Focus Group Applications
From evaluating new product lines to network logos, our technology allowed the participants to sort out their preferences quickly and anonymously. Vote results can be shown to the group after every vote or can be hidden until the end. Depending on the session, votes can be done before and after presentations are made – then results can be compared.
Large groups can elect Executives into office or select Bargaining Committees, etc… With touch screen technology there are no wires to worry about and results come in quickly and accurately. With VotRite software the write–in option allows nominees to be entered into the ballot when nominated and instantly the nominee becomes a candidate. The VotRite program saves all vote results as they come in so that results can be printed during each vote and a printed report for a final vote count is printed at the end of the voting cycle.
Conference Polling Applications
For corporations and many associations including law enforcement, questions can be pre-crafted, done on-the-fly, or as a combination of both. Participants enjoy the anonymity and the instant feedback shown on the touch screen. Corporations and organizations routinely use voting to elect officers and Board members and for other proxy elections.
Employee Survey Applications
Demographic questions can be asked to break down the other Multiple Choice or Rating Scale results after the meeting to show what groups favor what solution or have more problem areas. Anonymity guarantees valid results and employees favor this method highly over paper surveys. Managers prefer electronic surveys due to our instant results and reporting functions.
Resolutions and Propositions
Political Parties or Associations can vote on Resolutions to pass or fail. Delegates can share keypads but still have individual opinions counted. Results can be cross-tabbed by Demographic questions and shown live to the group. This can be useful if it is important that the Resolution be passed or failed by the majority of groups in the room instead of just the majority of voters.
Demography is not the only or the best way to segment markets. Even more crucial to marketing objectives are differences in buyer attitudes, motivations, and values, patterns of usage, aesthetic preferences, and degree of susceptibility. Sound marketing objectives depend on knowledge of how segments which produce the most customers for a company’s brands differ in requirements and susceptibilities from the segments which produce the largest number of customers for competitive brands.
When will we come to our senses? VotersUnite.Org is only one of many, many websites full and overflowing with stories of how badly computerized voting equipment has performed, how easily an insider or outsider could hack the equipment to fix an election, and how dangerous to democracy is the country's dependence on concealed vote-counting provided by private, unaccountable voting system vendors.

Project Vote is a national nonpartisan, nonprofit 501(c)(3) that works to empower, educate, and mobilize low-income, minority, youth, and other marginalized and under-represented voters. Despite recent upticks in voter participation, a significant portion of the electorate, concentrated in low-income and minority communities, is still alienated from the electoral process. This weakens our democracy by excluding from major public policy decisions the voices of the most vulnerable and least powerful. Project Vote knows that strong democracy needs active participation from all sectors of society, and works hard to engage low-income and minority voters in the civic process.
