Edinburgh Community Council champions Idox e-voting

Leith Links – one of 44 Community Councils within the City of Edinburgh – recently went to the polls to elect 12 members from 17 candidates.

Having previously worked together, Edinburgh partnered with Idox Elections once again to deliver their 2016 elections, which included the provision of print services for poll cards and e-voting.

Poll cards with unique voting credentials were delivered to 8,500 electors in Leith Links, providing electors with options to vote online or via the traditional postal pack. By supporting online voting, Idox Elections offers citizens the choice and convenience to vote electronically in a fully-secure environment, at a time and place convenient to them.

On polling day, the polling station was equipped with two touch-screen laptops which were securely linked to the voting system,  accommodating those who wanted to vote online but were unable to because they had no internet access at home.

Donald Burgess, Postal Voting Manager at City of Edinburgh Council said; “Online voting increased voter participation and results were available for publishing within 15 minutes of polling closing.

Throughout the process, the Idox staff were easy to work with and readily demonstrated their professionalism and knowledge.”
