Introduction to Election Management

Election Management can be used to manage election day activities, monitor performance, and gauge voter sentiment.

The elections office is often the smallest agency in a government until Election Day, when it becomes the largest. Aging business systems and volunteer workforces that have varying skill levels present unique challenges. Election offices, in communities large and small, respond to Election Day issues and requests from polling places and voting centers. Issues with computer hardware, facilities, or supplies (for example, ballots, pens, pencils) impact wait times and confidence in the election process. As a result, timely response from elections staff is imperative. Election Management is typically implemented by clerks, election commissions, or secretary of state offices that want to run efficient elections and increase confidence in the voting process.

The Election Management solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you report wait times and request assistance at voting centers and polling places, dispatch field staff to respond to requests, monitor the performance of voting locations, and gauge the satisfaction of voters on Election Day.
