For the sixth year, AIJA will be using e-voting at the 2023 Annual Congress! This year, we are electing a new Vice-President of AIJA, a new Treasurer and voting for the partial renewal of the Executive Committee. We will also be using e-voting for other resolutions submitted to the General Assembly on Friday, 25 August.
E-voting is easy. Join us and enjoy the multiple benefits of e-voting next month in Rio de Janeiro or online! Here is why:
1. Direct participation
E-voting offers a more time-efficient and transparent way for members to be directly involved in the future of the association. This way association decisions are made with the consideration of the entire organisation.
E-voting is an electronic system that allows members to log into a secure voting platform and cast their votes electronically within their web or mobile browsers from any location and any device.
Voter privacy, election integrity, correctness and security are guaranteed through encryption protocols. To ensure that the election process is secure, please follow these instructions:
Step 1. Please log in on MyAIJA during the election windows and click on the link in the ‘AIJA ELECTIONS’ box you find on top of the home page. The link to the e-voting platform will only be available during the election window.
Step 2. Once you have clicked on the link, please follow the instructions and fill in the ballot. There will be no further identification required.
Step 3. Proxy holders cannot cast less or more than the exact number of votes assigned to them.
E-voting instantly collects and processes the data in real time. The voting platform can prevent accidental over-voting, as each voter is required to identify with their unique Membership ID Number through MyAIJA.
