Transforming NGO Elections: The Evolutionary Impact of eVoting


Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) are entities that are set up for non-profit, philanthropic or charitable purposes and are not owned by the government. NGOs are generally managed by a group of people who are elected by the members or contributors of the organisation. Voting is an essential part of the democratic functioning of NGOs, as it allows the members to choose their representatives and voice their opinions on various resolutions.

NGO voting is important for several reasons

It ensures that the NGO is led by competent, qualified, and committed people who share the same values and goals as the NGO.

It enhances the credibility, legitimacy and reputation of the NGO, as it shows that the NGO is transparent, accountable and participatory in its decision making.

It empowers the members, beneficiaries and supporters of the NGO, as it gives them a voice and a choice in selecting their leaders.

It fosters a sense of ownership, belonging and responsibility among the stakeholders of the NGO, as they feel more involved and invested in the NGO’s work.

It promotes diversity, inclusion and representation within the NGO, as it encourages different perspectives, backgrounds and experiences to be part of the leadership.

Challenges faced by NGOs in conducting elections

Low voter turnout: Many members may not be able to participate in the voting due to geographical, logistical or personal constraints. This reduces the legitimacy and representation of the elected body.

High operational costs: Setting up physical voting booths, hiring manpower, printing ballot papers, transporting and storing EVM machines, ensuring security and transparency, and counting the votes manually are some of the expenses involved in conducting elections.

Lack of security and accuracy: The physical voting process may be vulnerable to tampering, manipulation, fraud, human errors or technical glitches. This may compromise the integrity and reliability of the election results.

Lack of convenience and accessibility: The members may have to travel long distances, wait in queues or face other hassles to cast their votes. This may discourage them from exercising their voting rights and affect their satisfaction.

The Positive Impact of e-Voting for NGOs

NGOs can adopt eVoting, which is a voting technology that enables the members to cast their votes electronically, from their computer, phone or tablet. eVoting offers many benefits for NGOs such as:

Increased voter turnout: eVoting allows the members to vote from anywhere and at any time, within the voting period. This enhances the participation and engagement of the members and ensures a higher representation of their views and preferences.

Reduced operational costs: eVoting eliminates the need for physical infrastructure, manpower and logistics involved in conducting elections. This saves a lot of money and resources for the NGOs and allows them to focus on their core activities and objectives.

Enhanced security and accuracy: eVoting uses encryption, authentication, audit trail, voter receipt and other features to ensure the security and accuracy of the voting process and the results. eVoting also enables faster and error-free counting and reporting of the votes.

Improved convenience and accessibility: eVoting provides a user-friendly and hassle-free voting experience for the members. They can vote with a few clicks or taps, without having to travel, wait or face any difficulties. eVoting also allows the members to access information and updates about the elections and the candidates.
