Success story

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.


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.


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.
