Success story

Mahidol University

Mahidol University (MU) is an autonomous research institution in Thailand, which has been recognized as the country’s fourth public university. MU offers a total of 629 programs in 17 faculties, 6 colleges, 9 research institutions and 6 campuses.

What

Student Club Presidential Election, Faculty of Health Sciences, Mahidol University, 2018 Academic Year.

The elections were held at the Faculty of Public Health of the University of Mahidol and included 5 candidates and 700 voters.

In the past, similar paper-based elections, as well as the vote counting, usually took 3-4 weeks.

Solution

Online election with Polys

Holding the elections with the Polys web-based app took approximately 3 days, which included the organization, the actual voting process and the counting of results.

Instead of all the time-consuming paperwork that usually accompanied election preparations, MU spent more time distributing election information to students. As a result, turnout was 60%.

I like how quick it was to find out the result — there’s no more need to have lots of people counting the votes.
