Simply Voting
ACPE News | October 2017

This is the software used by ACPE to conduct online voting. It makes voting more convenient, less costly and friendlier on the environment.

How Simply Voting Works

1. Members will receive an email from vote@acpe.edu with an Elector ID and Password and a link to the ACPE Simply Voting website.

 

2. If your login is successful, you will be shown a menu listing all current ballots in which you are eligible to vote. If you have not yet voted, you may click on the ballot name and an electronic ballot will appear.


3. Once you submit a ballot, the results are encrypted and stored in a database. Your Elector ID is then flagged as "voted" and will not be eligible to vote on the ballot again.

Privacy and Security
Simply Voting was designed from the ground-up to eliminate the risk of electoral fraud. Voters who bypass authentication or have already voted are denied access to the ballot, and ballots are checked for validity before being accepted. Nobody could ever find out what a particular voter has voted as the results are stored anonymously.

Communication between your computer and our website is encrypted with TLS 1.2. Simply Voting's servers are "hardened" and are routinely subjected to PCI Compliance security scans. Their application code adheres to guidelines set out by the Open Web Application Security Project.
