You can use the reports tab to, at the very least, determine the basic results of your votes and elections.
However, there are additional analytics and reports worth paying attention to. This article will teach you how to leverage the most important ones.
Downloading a PDF of Your Results
In your ballot’s Reports Tab, click Download to get a PDF of your results to easily share with others how the vote turned out. This report also access is also accessible via your dashboard by clicking on the bar graph next to a completed ballot.
Additional Vote Analytics and Reporting Capabilities
Within the reports tab you will see three other tabs: Statistics, Voter Activity, and Results. Have a look at each to gain a deeper understanding of your voting results.
The Statistics sub-tab lets you view:
Overall voter turnout on your ballot
Activity by date
Activity by time
A daily voter activity report
This will help you answer important statistical questions, like:
How many people have voted? How many votes are you still waiting on?
What day was most popular for voting?
What times were their votes cast?
The Voter Activity sub-tab allows you to drill down into each of your voter’s activity, one by one.
For each person, you can see if they have:
Voted on the ballot
Viewed the ballot, but didn’t vote
Neither viewed, nor voted on the ballot
This will help you make judgements about what to do next in order to increase the amount of engagement and participation.
For example, you could:
Send a follow up email to everyone who hasn’t voted yet and encourage them to do so before your vote ends.
Reach out to the folks that viewed the ballot, but didn’t vote and ask why they didn’t choose to do vote.
Send a nice thank you message to those who did vote.
The Voter Activity tab also houses a detailed Voter Activity Report that shows all of the changes made to the ballot after it was activated.
These are the results of your ballot.
The availability of your results will depend on the settings within this tab.
If you want your results available in real-time, choose (from the Settings tab) the same time for Ballot Opens date and the Date When Results Are Available. Otherwise, select a date when you’d like to have access to them.
